A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. The benefit of using implants is that they don’t rely on neighboring teeth for support—they are individually permanent and stable. Implants are a good solution to tooth loss because they look and feel like natural teeth.
Implant material is made from different types of metallic and bone-like ceramic materials that are compatible with body tissue. Our office can get you set up for a single implant for replacement of a single tooth, two implants for a bridge, or multiple implants for an anchored denture depending on your needs. After a healing period, we will fabricate the crown, bridge or denture that restores teeth to optimum condition.
