Dental Implants

Perhaps no single development in dentistry has been more profound than dental implants.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root up on which a tooth restoration is built, such as crowns, bridges or dentures

.

They are made from titanium, a strong and light weight metal that has been used successfully for over 30 years. Dental implants provide the strength and stability necessary to eat without struggling to chew, prevent bone loss and help maintain facial features.

Implant Placement into Sockets
Dental implants are ideal for a young, middle-aged or older adult who has lost a tooth or teeth due to gum disease, an injury, tooth decay or some other reason.  Whether you need to replace a single tooth, several, or all of your teeth, there is an implant solution that’s right for you.

Single Implant – Upper Posterior
A dental implant is composed of three parts: the titanium implant that fuses with the jawbone; a small metal post or abutment, which fits over the portion of the implant that protrudes above the gum line; and the crown, which fits onto the abutment and is created to look like your natural tooth.  Titanium is a strong and light weight metal that has been used successfully for over 30 years.

Effects of Single Tooth Loss
In the long term, implants are functional, esthetic and comfortable, allowing you to retain a natural bite and chewing capabilities.
