What is a Dental Implant?

Implants are a tooth replacement option that involves placing a new "root" into the bone of your jaw. Once this titanium "root" has infused with your bone, it can be used to support a crown, bridge or denture. These implants can also be used to replace partials and other forms of dentures.

The biocompatible material titanium used as the artificial tooth root is a significant factor in the incredible success rate of dental implants. Because titanium is accepted so well by the human body, it is also used for orthopedic implants, such as hip and knee replacements.

Dental Implants have now become the standard for replacing older dentistry and missing teeth because they look and feel like your natural teeth and have a higher success rate than all other forms of tooth replacement.

The initial cost is generally higher for an implant over different types of tooth replacement, but the long-term benefits easily outweigh the difference in additional cost. An investment in implant dentistry is an investment in overall health, appearance and well being, as it involves preserving the integrity of facial structures, as well as replacing missing teeth.
