Dental implants are a permanent replacement for lost teeth. Implants look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth. They can also help prevent bone loss that might occur after a tooth is extracted. Implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth, or they can be used to support a bridge or denture to replace multiple teeth.
The dental implant is surgically placed in your jawbone in the location of the missing tooth. Once the implant has been placed, it will begin a natural process of integrating with the surrounding bone. This provides a strong and permanent bond to support the implant. Once the implant has healed, we can attach a dental crown or other restoration to replace the lost tooth or teeth.
