What is an Implant?
A dental implant can be thought of as an artificial tooth root that is submerged into the jawbone. A dental implant is fabricated from a very strong, biocompatible material placed in a simple surgical procedure. After an initial healing period, during which the implant is buried in bone and left undisturbed under gum tissue, it is uncovered and can then be used for a number of purposes in the mouth.
Here at Just White Dental, our dentists use only the highest quality implants available on the market. Our implants are backed by years of research and an immeasurable number of success stories.

What are Dental Implants Used For?
Dental implants can help to improve your mouth in a number of ways. The most common use is to replace a single missing tooth. A dental implant is often a more superior way of replacing a single missing tooth compared to other conventional methods. This is because an implanted tooth comes closest to replicating a natural tooth. An implanted tooth also does no damage to adjacent teeth.
Dental implants can also be used to replace multiple missing teeth, not just one single tooth. This may avoid the need for unhealthy, long-span bridges.
Lastly dental implants can be used to secure loose dentures. If you are one of the many people in the population putting up with loose, uncomfortable dentures, dental implants may make a world of difference for you.
Am I Suitable for Dental Implants?
Suitability for dental implants are based on a number of factors. You must firstly have sufficient bone in the area where the implant is to be placed. Also the bone must have a certain level of density. Your dentist at Just White Dental will use the latest technologies to to measure these factors. In general most people are suitable for dental implants.
