A dental implant is a titanium post (like a tooth root) that is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line that allows us to mount replacement teeth or a bridge into that area. If you are missing a tooth (or teeth), there are several replacement options available. A dental implant is one of those options.
One of the benefits of implants over other options for tooth replacement is that implants are independent of other natural teeth. Since they integrate into the jaw bone, they do not need to be supported by other teeth.
If you are interested to see if implants are a good solution to restore your missing teeth, we would be happy to evaluate your needs and discuss your options.
