Implants are similar to tooth roots and are composed of titanium that are placed into your bone. Your bone is allowed to grow into and around the implant(s) to make them permanently fixed into the bone. The bone is given several months to heal and integrate well around the implant. Implants are used to replace missing teeth via crowns, bridges or dentures to increase biting ability and stability. The restorations are placed on top of the implants to make them look like natural teeth. Come in today at Smile Profile Dental and see if you are a candidate for implants!
