What Is A Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a small titanium post that replaces the root of your missing tooth and is positioned inside your jawbone, just as your natural tooth roots are. This is completed during a minor surgical procedure. Attached to the implant is a connecting piece called an abutment, which is capped like a lifelike prosthetic crown. Working together, these precision parts form a tooth-replacement system that offers unparalleled advantages. Dental implants can also be used to replace a group of teeth or a full set of teeth.

Why Dental Implants?

Decades of research has established that dental implants are the best option to replace missing teeth. There is no other option that will give you longer lasting, higher functioning, better-looking results. Thanks to advances in technology that have made the procedure suitable for a wide variety of situations, it is likely that you are a candidate for this procedure.
