Dental implants provide a lifelike, long-lasting alternative to traditional replacement teeth. A small, surgical-grade titanium post is inserted in the jawbone, and functions as a replacement for the tooth root. Jawbone tissue heals tightly to the post for long-term stability. A small abutment attached atop the post secures one or more natural-looking replacement teeth.
Dental implants provide countless benefits over traditional tooth replacement alternatives, including a completely natural look and feel, elimination of jawbone loss, and unsurpassed longevity. Implants boast a high success rate – 97 to 99% – and have the potential to last a lifetime with proper care.
