Dental implants are the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. They consist of a titanium post that acts as an artificial tooth root, which is surgically placed into the jawbone. Over time, this post fuses with the bone in a process known as osseointegration, providing a stable foundation for a replacement tooth or bridge. This fusion not only ensures the implant stays securely in place but also helps preserve the jawbone and maintain facial structure.

The journey to a restored smile with dental implants involves several steps, beginning with a thorough evaluation of your oral health and jawbone density to ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure. Following this, the implant placement surgery is performed under local anesthesia, making the process as comfortable as possible. After the implant has integrated with the jawbone, a custom-made crown or bridge is attached, blending seamlessly with your natural teeth in both appearance and function.
