Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?
If you are looking for a tooth replacement option, you may be considering dental implants. A dental implant is used to replace the entire tooth structure, including the tooth root. The process is completed in multiple parts and involves a titanium post that is implanted in the jawbone to act as a replacement for the tooth root. Over time, this post fuses with the jawbone, and treatment is completed when a replacement tooth structure, such as a dental crown, is placed in the mouth.
