About Dental Implants
Dental implants are tooth root replacements made from medical grade titanium. A complete single tooth restoration involves three components: a titanium tooth root, a titanium abutment, and a custom restoration. Each customized dental implant restoration is designed to look, feel, and function like a natural tooth. Implants can be used to support a single tooth, bridge, partial, and diverse styles of dentures.
