What Is a Dental Implant?

In the following video, Brent Bradford, DDS, discusses the modern solution for replacing individual, or entire rows of, missing or badly damaged teeth.

A dental implant is a modern solution for replacing missing teeth or securing loose dentures. It essentially acts as a substitute for a natural tooth root. Made from titanium alloy, it’s shaped like a screw and is surgically inserted into the jawbone where a tooth is missing.

Once in place and properly integrated with the bone, it serves as a sturdy foundation for a variety of dental restorations, including crowns, bridges, or to provide added stability to dentures. Because it fuses with the bone, a dental implant is a durable and long-term solution that not only holds the restoration in place but also helps to preserve the jawbone and maintain the structure of the face.

If you’re dealing with the challenge of missing teeth or are tired of managing a loose denture, please reach out for a complimentary consultation. We’d be happy to evaluate whether dental implants are a suitable option for you.
