Dental Implant Therapy is designed to look, feel, and function like your natural dentition. Implants themselves are small titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium (osseointegrates), creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, dental implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence.
