Dr. Shamsi is pleased to be offering Dental Implants at Horizons. Dental Implants have been around since 1965, by the founder Branemark; evidence based statistics show a 97% success rate.
Implants provide a fixed replacement for lost teeth. An implant is a titanium replica of a tooth root that is implanted into the jaw bone and can then support single or multiple tooth restoration. They can even be used to support full dentures to minimise movement. The system used is Osstem. This Dental Implant System features an innovative design that provides for simplified surgical procedures and ease of placement for the dentist, and shorter recovery time for patients. Osstem Implants also offer the benefits of stress reduction on crestal bone, high compression strength, predictable initial stability, and excellent tissue response.
