Dental implants are surgical-grade root devices that support tooth prosthetics (crowns, bridge, denture) to allow for more efficient chewing as well as better cosmetics. These artificial roots are anchored in the bone beneath the gums where they become fused into the jaw through a process called osseointegration. A crown is mounted atop the implant for a long-lasting and natural looking smile.
Dental implants offer the same function as natural teeth and also help prevent bone atrophy in the jaw. They may be used to replace a single missing tooth or multiple teeth to restore your smile.
