Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial teeth that function just like your natural teeth. They’re a long-term solution for people who have lost one or more teeth. The dental implant functions by replacing the tooth, while increasing stability and durability.

A dental implant’s root is a titanium post that is inserted into the jaw bone. This is eventually where a permanent crown will be placed to allow your mouth to function normally. Preserve Your Facial Structure Implants play a crucial role in preserving your facial structure and the function of your mouth. By utilizing dental implants, your bone is preserved, and slow deterioration is prevented.

Enjoy Life Despite Missing Teeth

Dental implants help restore a patient’s quality of life. They can enjoy laughing, eating, talking, and even kissing like they did before they lost their teeth. Implants give a patient a great quality of life that is much like what they had when they had their natural teeth.
