Dental Implant

Dental implant (endosseous implant fixture) is a replacement tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation to support a dental prosthesis, fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth, crown, bridge and denture that are made to match your natural teeth.

Most dental implant surgery procedures are performed in the dentist's office. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth. Because implants fuse to your jawbone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth. Dentures and bridges mounted to implants won't slip or shift in your mouth Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth.
