One of the most effective and natural-looking tooth replacement options is the dental implant. Dental implants are man-made tooth roots (usually made of titanium) that are used to create a steady foundation for attractive and functional replacement teeth.
To replace a missing tooth, the implant post is first placed in the jawbone at the location of the missing tooth. During a period of healing, the implant and the jawbone fuse together in a process known as osseointegration. Our experienced dentist will then attach a dental implant restoration to the top of the dental implant post to complete the treatment and fully restore your smile. The type of dental implant restoration depends on how many teeth are missing and on your personal needs and preferences. Dental crowns are very common implant restorations, and dental bridges and dentures can also be used in conjunction with dental implants.
