Dental Implant Surgery

What Are Dental Implants?

The loss of teeth can result in difficulties with eating, speech and appearance. There are many options to replace missing teeth including dentures and crowns. Dental implants are small metal screws that can be placed into the jaw bones to allow dentures and crowns to attach to the jawbone resulting in a natural feel and improved ability to eat and chew. Facial appearance can also be restored

Your doctor will examine your mouth and jaw to determine if implants are right for you.
