A dental implant is a small man-made titanium fixture that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. The implant is placed in the bone of the upper or lower jaw and allowed to bond with the bone and serve as an anchor for the replacement tooth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth. Implant supported replacement teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth.

Dental implants are a proven restorative option with a long clinical history. Dental implants preserve the integrity of the facial structure and reduce the inconvenience associated with tooth loss.

Dental implants replace missing natural teeth with natural-looking, natural-feeling titanium ones. Edentulism, or tooth loss, can create several problems.

Because implants “mimic” natural teeth, they allow the patient to go on as before the tooth loss occurred. The same foods can be eaten, and the risk of resorption is greatly reduced.
