Dental implants are prosthetic tooth roots made to replace missing or badly damaged tooth roots. Implants provide a strong, new foundation to help with stability and integration. They are secured to the bone in order to give the tooth a more natural feeling. Implants are usually made of titanium or titanium alloys to make it strong, light, and more compatible with your body.
Dental implants need two appointments in order to place the implant fully. The first appointment is used to surgically insert the implant into the jawbone below the gums and replace the missing tooth. The second appointment takes place when the implant has healed so a bridge, crown, or denture can be firmly placed on top of the implant. To date, this is one of the most successful and advanced tooth replacement procedures available.If you are in need of a dental implant, please feel free to contact our offices and make an appointment today!
