An implant is an anchor that serves as a replacement root when a tooth is missing. Dental implants are often made from titanium, and they look a bit like screws. Once they are implanted, they can bond with the jawbone in a process called osseointegration, making them extremely strong and long lasting and also helping preserve the bone around the lost tooth. Lake Bonavista Dental Associates will use an implant to support single replacement teeth, or sometimes they can be used to support dentures.
Our dentists will examine you to determine if implants are a good treatment option for you. Set up an appointment today to learn more.
