WHAT IS DENTAL IMPLANT

Dental implants are biocompatible anchors, which act as tooth root replacements. They are surgically embedded into the jawbone. Over time, the implant undergoes a biological process called osseointegration, where the medical grade titanium fuses with the bone in the jaw to provide the most complete permanent solution to missing teeth. Small posts are then attached to the implant, which protrude through the gums. These posts provide stable anchors for dental prosthesis.

Are Dental Implants Right for You?

If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants can provide a permanent solution. Unlike dentures or bridges, dental implants are built to last. This makes them your best long-term, cost-effective solution. The first step is to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants.
