Dental Implants

When you’re missing teeth, you may not feel comfortable eating or speaking. You might even avoid smiling in public. The good news is that dental implants can help. Implants can replace a single tooth, several teeth or all the teeth in your mouth. And when the work is finished, they look and feel like natural teeth.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root. It is placed through the gum and into the jawbone during oral surgery. Your jawbone fuses with the implant to provide a secure platform for a prosthesis (artificial tooth). If you are missing many teeth, several implants can be used to support a partial or complete denture.
