Dental implants are titanium posts that can be placed and positioned into the bone by surgical methods. The posts can then be used to mount the replacement teeth onto them. They offer stable support for artificial teeth, like crowns or dentures. To receive an implant, you need healthy gums, adequate bone support, and a commitment to keep good oral hygiene. Implants are also a good option for patients who do not like to wear dentures. Please ask if you are a candidate for implants. Consults are free.
