What are dental implants?

Dental implants are made of titanium metal which is very biocampatible with your body. The implants are surgically inserted anchors placed in the jaw to hold artificial teeth or dentures. The metal implant acts as a post that serves as a ‘root’ for the new tooth. Once inserted, the implants look and feel natural.

If you have lost one or more teeth and want a lasting, fixed solution, implants may be a choice for you. They are custom made for your mouth and they allow you to chew more efficiently. They are more convenient since you don’t have to take them in or out like dentures. Implants also help maintain your jawbone. If you think implants may be a solution for you, please call us.
