A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone. It is meant to replace and act as a tooth root beneath the gum line. Over the span of a few months, this surgical fixture will actually fuse with the patient’s bone. Once it does, the dental implant will act as a replacement for the missing tooth root, upon which our team can mount replacement teeth or dental bridges.
