Dental Implants

A dental implant is a natural tooth replacement.  An implant can be placed into the space previously occupied by a broken, cracked, or abscessed tooth.  Most implants are made of titanium, and coated with a material that is compatible with bone. This allows the bone to "grow" around the implant.  Implants are extremely successful (97-98%), and can last a lifetime if proper care and hygiene are practiced.  Dental implants allow a person to talk, eat, kiss, and smile...without the fear, risk, smell, or uncertainty of partial dentures or bridges.  Implants can be a solution for just one missing tooth, or several missing teeth.
