Implant Information

An implant is a titanium “root” which can be placed into the jawbone.  Once integrated with your bone, the implant can be used to support a crown, a bridge, or secure a complete denture.  Dental implants may be used to eliminate partial plates and dentures.  Implants have been used successfully for over 30 years and have a high success rate, and function and feel like your natural teeth.  Dental implants are now the standard of care for replacing missing teeth.  Dental implant treatment represents a slightly greater investment than conventional treatment; however, the benefits of implant therapy for most patients outweigh the minor additional cost involved.
