Dental implants are used to restore your smile after you’ve lost a tooth. A dental implant is usually a titanium component that is inserted into your bone where your tooth root used to be. We will place a crown on top of the dental implant, and because it’s secured to your jaw, it will function exactly like a natural tooth. In addition, the stimulation that your jaw receives from the implant will promote long-term health of the bone.
If you are missing more than one tooth, your dental implants can also be used to support a bridge or secure a pair of dentures. Whatever type of restoration option you choose, dental implants provide increased durability and stability to your new tooth.
