Implant Dentistry

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small, titanium cylinders that are surgically placed in the bone to act as the tooth’s root. Titanium is an alloy that has been used in the dental field for many years. Artificial hips and other joints are also made from titanium because the body accepts it as a natural substance. Bone grows around the implant and creates a permanent, stable anchor for a replacement tooth or teeth.

Considerations for dental implants.

A dental implant helps to prevent bone loss and shifting of teeth in the area of a missing tooth. Implants also help to maintain a proper bite.

To learn more about replacing missing teeth with dental implants, call to schedule a consultation with Dr Wallace.
