Dental Implant Surgery at OSSIM

Dental implant surgery is a procedure to replace missing teeth or to provide support for a dental prosthesis, such as dentures or bridges.

What Is Dental Implant Surgery?

Dental implant surgery is a dental procedure that involves the placement of an artificial tooth root, typically made of titanium or other biocompatible materials, into the jawbone to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, or denture. The dental implant is a small post that is surgically placed into the jawbone and allowed to fuse with the bone over time in an osseointegration process. Once the implant fully integrates with the jawbone, it can support a prosthetic tooth or teeth attached to it. Dental implant surgery is typically performed by a specialized dental professional, such as a periodontist or oral surgeon, with extensive training and experience in this procedure. The procedure may be performed under local anesthesia


  • Improved function: Dental implants function like natural teeth, allowing patients to eat and speak normally without difficulty. Unlike other dental restorations, such as dentures, implants do not slip or move around, providing a stable and comfortable chewing surface.

  • Aesthetically pleasing: Dental implants are designed to look and feel like natural teeth, which can improve a patient’s smile and overall appearance. They are also available in various sizes, shapes and colors to match a patient’s natural teeth.

  • Long-lasting: Dental implants have a high success rate and can last for many years with proper care and maintenance. Many implants can last a lifetime, making them a cost-effective long-term solution for missing teeth.
