Dental implants are a lifetime replacement for missing teeth. Many patients prefer implants as an alternative to bridges or dentures – implants are permanent, don’t shift, and help keep your jawbones healthy. We use dental implants to replace teeth with dental crowns or implant-supported dentures.
How implants work
Implants are tiny metal appliances that resemble common wood screws. The implant is made from titanium, a metal that bonds to bone tissue. The implant is surgically placed in your jawbone where it fuses with your bone to provide a strong foundation.
Once the implant is in place we then attach a restoration such a crown to replace your missing tooth.
Mini implants are special implants that are used for patients with deteriorated or thin bone tissue. They can provide a high level of support for replacements such as implant supported dentures.
