Implant Placement & RestorationA dental implant is an artificial root made of titanium metal. It is surgically inserted into the jawbone to replace the root of the natural tooth. An artificial replacement tooth is then attached to the implant. The implant acts as an anchor to hold the replacement tooth in place.
In most circumstances we are able to both place and restore dental implants in our facility. In clinical situations where the surgery is more difficult, we will refer patients to a specialist to place the implant. Once that has healed, we will complete the procedure with the restoration, i.e. the replacement tooth.
When replacing several teeth or all of your teeth either a fixed bridge is anchored to your implants or a removable partial or full denture is made to snap into special attachments on the implants.
We are pleased to provide more comprehensive information at your request.
