Dental Implants

Dental implants are alternatives to dentures and bridges, used to replace a tooth that has been pulled or has fallen out due to decay or trauma. An implant uses a metal post that is implanted into the jaw bone. This post acts like a “natural” tooth root to secure an artificial tooth using an attachment piece called an abutment. Dental implants are designed to look and “work” like a natural tooth, even promoting the normal replacement of jaw bone tissue just like a natural tooth root. They also do not require adhesives, and they can be cared for just like the rest of the teeth. Implants usually take three visits to complete.
