A dental implant can be thought of as an artificial tooth root that is submerged into the jawbzone. When dental work such as a crown, fixed bridge, or a full set of dentures is added, one or more missing teeth can be replaced. A dental implant is fabricated from a very strong material (titanium) that is compatible with your body and is placed in a simple office procedure which generally is no more inconvenient than a tooth extraction. After an initial healing period during which the implant is buried in bone and left undisturbed under gum tissue, it is uncovered and connected to a small metal post that secures and supports the artificial teeth. Our implant system is one of the easiest to place. It is also one of the most secure as bone grows into a 3-dimensional honeycomb network on its surface to integrate it with the bone.
