A Dental Implant is a method of replacing one or multiple teeth using your remaining bone to anchor a root-shaped post.
Dental Implants are nothing new. They’ve been around for several decades and because they have a high rate of long-term success and because you don’t need to involve any additional teeth, they have become the standard of care for replacing missing teeth.
Placing a Dental Implant involves careful planning to make sure you are a good candidate and minimize the potential of negative results.

More Information on Implants and Tooth Replacements
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root replacement. We use implants in our cosmetic dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth.
The most widely accepted and successful implant today is the osseointegrated implant, based on the discovery that titanium can be successfully fused into bone when the bone grows onto and into the rough surface of the implanted titanium. This forms a structural and functional connection between the living bone and the implant.
A variation on the implant procedure is the implant-supported bridge, or implant-supported denture.
Dental Implants – what you need to know!
Whether you’re missing one or multiple teeth, dental implants have become the standard of care for restoring aesthetics and function, and with the latest developments they have become more affordable than ever.
A careful evaluation is critical for the success of the procedure. The actual implant placement procedure takes only a few minutes and can be done with local anesthesia. Adequate healing time is also needed for the implant to attach to your tissues and provide anchor for a crown or bridge.
