Dental Implants

A dental implant is a titanium “root” device used to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth to replace missing teeth. All dental implants placed today are similar to an actual tooth root and are placed within the bone. Dental implants are strong, stable, and durable artificial roots that can support a number of dental prostheses, including crowns, bridges or dentures.

REASONS FOR DENTAL IMPLANTS – Replace one or more missing teeth, resolve the joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting, improve smile, restore chewing, speech, and digestion, restore  facial tissue, support a bridge or denture.

WHAT IS INVOLVED IN DENTAL IMPLANTS? – Careful and detailed planning is required. The implant will be surgically placed into the bone and allow to heal and integrate with the bone. A second surgery is required in order to place a “post” that will hold a tooth in place. Several weeks later, after the healing period, the artificial teeth are attached to the implant.
