A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium or zirconia. It is inserted into the mandible or maxilla to replace the natural tooth. An aesthetic zirconia crown is connected to the implant. The implant anchors the zirconia crown in place.

TYPES OF IMPLANTS
Titanium implants have been used since the 1960s. They are the most common type of implant and are known to be durable and functional.
Zirconia implants are an all-white non-metal alternative to titanium implants. This implant has become increasingly popular in holistic dentistry due to its biocompatibility, durability, and natural look and feel.
What is PRF?
PRF is an all-natural way to promote healing and recovery after tooth removals and is recommended to those interested in implants in the future. PRF stands for Platelet Rich Fibrin. It is one of the major components found in the blood. PRF contains important-infection fighting, anti-inflammatory, blood clotting factors, and stem cells which are beneficial for the body's healing response.
How is PRF obtained?
PRF is obtained by taking a small sample of blood from the patient's arm and the PRF is then extracted using a centrifuge.
How is PRF used in Dentistry?
Once a blood sample is obtained and the PRF is extracted, the PRF is applied to the empty tooth site where it can help attract bone-forming cells to regenerate the surrounding bone. This allows optimal outcomes for our patients.
