What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants provide a lifelike, long-lasting alternative to traditional replacement teeth. A small, surgical-grade titanium post is inserted in the jawbone and functions as a replacement for the tooth root. Jawbone tissue heals tightly to the post for long-term stability. A small abutment attached atop the post secures one or more natural-looking replacement teeth.
Dental implants provide countless benefits over traditional tooth replacement alternatives, including a completely natural look and feel, elimination of jawbone loss, and unsurpassed longevity. Implants boast a high success rate – 95 to 99% – and have the potential to last a lifetime with proper care.

This innovative restorative dentistry solution is a great choice for almost anyone with missing teeth or an ill-fitting partial or denture. Even some people who were previously told they are not candidates for dental implants could, actually, be candidates. At your implant consultation, your doctor will help you determine the right course of treatment for your specific needs. Your surgeon will also assess whether you require pre-treatment procedures to prepare you for dental implants.
