Dental Implants

Dental implants enable dentists to create healthy, attractive smiles in an innovative way.  Implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone where it replaces the natural tooth root.  The artificial tooth roots are capped with a realistic aesthetic crown that is indistinguishable from the rest of your teeth.  The artificial tooth roots are made of bio-compatible titanium, allowing bone and gum tissue to grow securely around the implant.

 

For those who are missing a tooth or several teeth, dental implants are a sturdier and more natural looking alternative to bridges or dentures.  In addition to restoring a natural appearance in the mouth, implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing bone deterioration, which typically occurs when teeth are missing.
