An often overlooked portion of a tooth’s structure is the root. A successful root system does more than just provide nutrients for a living tooth. It also keeps the tooth steady and secure. Dental implants provide optimal support for a replacement tooth or teeth by mimicking the natural root structure.
A dental implant is a small screw-like appliance that is inserted into the jawbone. Implants are built from surgical-grade titanium, and they are attached to a supporting post that keeps a crown or bridge held in place as needed. It is also possible to use multiple implants together to secure a complete set of removable or fixed dentures. The main advantage of using titanium dental implants is that they fuse with the natural jawbone material and prevents the bone loss that occurs with tooth loss.
A dental implant is highly regarded for its ability to keep prosthetic teeth secure when the user is chewing and speaking. Another benefit is that dental implants help replacement teeth feel more natural. Overall, dental implants are the gold standard for those dealing with the challenges of tooth loss. Our practice specializes in endosteal implants.

Dental implants are titanium metal structures that are inserted into the jawbone to support lost or missing teeth. A supporting post is secured at the end of the structure. This supporting post keeps a dental crown, bridge or denture steady so that the user can chew food and speak clearly.
Dental implants provide several advantages. For one, they are the most effective way to keep replacement teeth steady and secure. The titanium construction allows the implants to fuse with the jawbone to prevent bone loss. Patients also find that a dental implant feels more natural than other tooth replacement options.
