A dental implant is a small titanium post that is inserted into your upper or lower jaw bone. The implant acts as a root would in a natural tooth. Titanium is used because it is very durable and compatible with the body.
Whether replacing a single tooth or multiple teeth, implants are great alternative to partial dentures or bridges. With dental implants, we can replicate the function and appearance of your natural teeth.
Additionally, if you have loose complete dentures, dental implants can be used to anchor them in place.
If taken care of properly with brushing, flossing, and regular dental checkups, implants can last a lifetime.
