A dental implant is essentially a small titanium screw-like post that is anchored into your jawbone and used to secure a prosthetic tooth. It is a fixed option to replace a missing tooth or teeth meaning that it does not have to be removed from your mouth and largely mimics natural teeth.
Dental implants are a relatively recent but proven treatment to replace missing teeth. At Walloon Dental, Dr Kapil Raniga is trained to place these implants. Consultation appointments with Dr Kapil are necessary in order for us to determine if you are an appropriate candidate and for us to provide a treatment time frame and relevant costs. Several consult appointments maybe necessary to arrange x-rays and go through the risks and benefits of the procedure.
