Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root (titanium screw) that can be placed in the jaw bone in order to replace one tooth, multiple teeth, or all teeth. Dental implants can replace one crown, support a bridge or be placed under a denture for increased retention. Dental implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support and act, look and feel just like natural teeth. Implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth, several teeth or all their teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.

Partial Tooth Loss: A dental implant is an artificial tooth root (titanium screw) that can be placed in the jaw bone in order to replace one or multiple missing teeth. Dental implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support and act, look and feel just like natural teeth.

Complete Tooth Loss: Multiple implants can be utilized to help support ill-fitting dentures to allow them to stay in place securely so that a patient can eat and talk without shifting of the denture. Painful sore spots can also be eliminated by having an implant supported denture. Multiple implants can also be placed for a fixed (non-removable) implant-supported bridge restoration to avoid having a denture.
