Every patient in need of tooth replacement is unique, as there are many different reasons people experience permanent tooth loss. Age, illness, injury, genetics, and other factors can all contribute to tooth loss, but they all share the same result: the need to replace those missing teeth, not just for appearance but for ease in speaking and eating.
Dental implants are the apex of tooth replacement technology. Permanent and attractive, dental implants are next best to the real thing as they both act and look like natural teeth.
A dental implant is a titanium rod with a mounted artificial tooth on one end. The process begins with the dentist preparing the jawbone by surgically implanting the rod portion, which will act as the root of the new tooth. After the jaw and gums heal, the dentist mounts the artificial tooth onto the rod. The result? A brand new tooth that looks and functions just like the real thing. You even brush and floss them the same way you would your natural teeth. Based on your individual needs, we can make the implants removable or fixed.
