If one or more of your teeth are missing and you’d like to smile, speak and eat again with comfort and confidence, dental implants are teeth that look and feel just like your own. An implant is a small, artificial tooth root made of titanium placed into your jaw to hold a custom-crafted replacement tooth or bridge. Implants are an ideal option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease or injury.

Implants also support removable dentures or full arch bridges. In this way, implants solve a number of problems, including loss of bone in the jaw, loose and uncomfortable dentures, and a compromised appearance. Implants halt these problems by replacing roots, stabilizing the jawbone and securing the denture. If you’re missing all the upper or lower teeth, implants are a great way to restore your natural smile.
