A Dental Implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium which looks like a screw or post and is both strong and light. Tooth implants in Kenya at Molars Dental Clinics in Nairobi are custom-made, durable teeth replacements that do not slip and pose less risk of gum irritation.
Dental implant surgery is one of the safest and most predictable procedures in dentistry. A dental implant is the strongest device available to support replacement teeth, and it allows your replacement teeth to feel, look and work naturally.
In addition, dental implants are the only restoration method that stimulates your natural bone underneath the missing tooth. They are designed to become permanent fixtures to your mouth, as if you’d never lost the tooth at all.
Missing teeth can not only affect a person’s appearance, they can also cause difficulty with chewing and speaking and have a negative impact on one’s livelihood. Dental implants offer a permanent fix for missing teeth with results that both look and feel natural.

With any of our implant procedures, you can rest assured that you are receiving the highest standard of treatment we are your partners throughout the whole process, and long after.

Dental Implant procedure
Our leading dentists in Kenya at Molars Dental Clinic practice with the philosophy of a conservative, minimally invasive and gentle approach in treating their patients.
Dental implants treatment involves several pieces which may be described as having two main parts. One part is a restoration that is custom fabricated to match the shape of a natural tooth crown while the second part is the implant that replaces the function of a natural tooth root.
Once the dentist determines that you are a candidate for the procedure, our qualified dentist will place a thin rod underneath the gum in the area of the missing tooth. This strong titanium rod will fuse itself to the jaw within a four month period of time.
A temporary crown can be placed over the rod during this period. After the fusion is complete, the implanted rod has become a permanent part of your mouth, and is ready for a permanent crown to be attached over the gum.
Your dentist can then have a porcelain dental crown custom-designed for you. Once prepared, he or she will affix the crown over the rod and color-tint it so that it blends in with your natural teeth.
After the crown is placed, your dental implant procedure is complete and your new tooth should look and feel natural, improve your appearance as well as your ability to chew and speak. And best of all, the results are permanent.
