What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a modern, permanent tooth replacement that can greatly enhance the function, health, and beauty of your smile. The dental implant, which is a small screw or post usually made of titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone where the missing tooth was located. After a period of healing, a dental implant restoration is placed on top of the implant post. This part of the implant restores your ability to speak and eat as normal, as well as improving the appearance of your smile. Depending on how many teeth are missing, your dental implant restoration may be a full or partial denture, a dental crown, or a dental bridge. Our caring dentist, Dr. [doctor_name], will help you choose the type of implant restoration that is right for your smile.
