What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a small titanium post that is surgically placed below the gums and into the jaw bone. During the healing period, the implant and bone will fuse together to create a powerful bond. This process is known as osseointegration. Once the bone and the implant are properly fused, we attach an abutment. Abutments can be used to support dental crowns, fixed bridges, or even dentures. The type of restoration you receive depends on the amount of missing or decayed teeth. For patients missing one tooth, we use a dental crown. For patients missing several teeth, multiple implants are used to support a fixed bridge. When an entire arch of teeth needs to be replaced, we can use an implant-retained denture.
