A dental implant is a small titanium fixture that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. The implant is placed in the upper or lower jaw. It will integrate with the bone over time and thus serve as an anchor for the replacement tooth.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth.
With more than three decades of clinical experience and over a million patients treated, crowns and bridges supported by dental implants are highly successful.
Dental implants placed in patients 35 years ago are still functioning today!
