Implants

A dental implant mimics the form and function of a natural tooth, which consists of a root and a crown.  The crown is the visible part of your tooth that you can see.  The crown is attached to your jaw by the tooth's root.  When a tooth reaches a point where it must be extracted, the entire tooth, root included, is taken out.  The dental implant is made of titanium and is placed in your jaw so that it can function the same as a natural tooth's root would.  Once the implant heals, we attach a crown on top of the implant.  The new crown is customized to match your bite and the color of your teeth.
