Dental implants have been used to replace teeth for over 30 years. Dental implants are a long-term way to replace lost or damaged teeth. Dental implants are made of titanium alloy and are used to replace a missing tooth’s root. Over a short period of 3 months, your implant fully integrates and is ready to be restored. Implants can replace individual missing teeth or to support a removable denture.

Additionally, implants may be used in conjunction with other restorative procedures for maximum effectiveness. For example, a single implant can serve to support a crown replacing a single missing tooth. Implants can also be used to support a dental bridge for the replacement of multiple missing teeth, and can be used with dentures to increase stability and reduce gum tissue irritation.
