Dental implants are much like a natural tooth, which has a root in your jawbone, topped by a crown you can see. When an implant is needed, we can insert a metal post beneath your gum and into the bone. This procedure is done right here in our office. It fuses to the bone in your jaw and acts like the root of a tooth. A crown or bridge is then fabricated to cover the implant. Implants can also support a full denture.
