Have you ever had nightmares about your teeth falling out? It’s actually a common experience that can often signify insecurity or loss of power.

How to solve the issue of missing teeth?

Thanks to dental implants, dentists can fully restore your missing smile and confidence.

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is the ideal tooth replacement. Not only does it feel and look just like a natural tooth, but it maintains the same strength, stability, and durability as natural teeth.

Dental implants don’t need removal while eating and sleeping and require no adjustments. This allows you to speak, eat and laugh, with no fuss or worries. Beyond basic oral hygiene, dental implants demand no special maintenance, giving them the functionality of any other tooth.

What are dental implants a good option?

The reason dental implants are so secure is that they are anchored in the jaw bone, giving them a firm base.

How does the procedure go?

Unlike other dental appliances, these permanent fixtures aren’t replaced and usually last a lifetime. Here's what the procedure entails:

  • First, a titanium post is implanted into the jawbone.
  • Then, an abutment piece is fixed onto the post.
  • Finally, a custom crown, designed by your Alexandria dentist is placed onto the implant, and viola, you have a brand-new tooth!
