What Are Dental Implants?

Using high-tech equipment and non-toxic, biocompatible materials, a dental implant is a titanium post that’s placed in your jawbone to act like the natural root of your tooth.

Once the implant has fully healed, we will secure the top portion of the restoration, usually a dental crown, part of a bridge, or dentures. The result is a brand new tooth (or set of teeth) that looks and functions just like your natural smile.
