What Are Dental Implants?

Learn what dental implants can do for your smile

A dental implant is titanium replacement of the root of a tooth. Implants can be used to support a single tooth or a row of joined or bridged teeth. Once it is placed into the jawbone it fuses with the bone over a period of several months and the bond becomes strong.

Dental implants offer the most durable and least-damaging method of replac­ing teeth. If only one tooth is missing, or if all your teeth are missing... it doesn’t matter; implants can be used to treat any situation.

Many people have a deteriorated set of natural teeth that they’re not proud of, and often they are terrified of having them out and wearing dentures. This is one of the best things about this process; most people can have teeth removed and implants put in at the same time, on the same day! In the
ma­jority of cases we can place implants in the morning, then progress to tempo­rary teeth on those implants later in the day.
