Dental implants are an effective treatment allowing the dentists in our office to replace missing teeth, as well as provide patients a method in which to possibly avoid having a denture or partial.
Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth (usually titanium) that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by a dentist or surgical specialist (oral surgeon or periodontist). The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking and often enhance or restore a patient’s smile!
Dental implants are very strong, stable, and durable solution for many patients. In most situations, dental implants will last many years. However, they are subject to wear and tear and require regular maintenance to ensure long-term success.
