Maintaining your jaw bone with dental implants

Tooth replacement

Dental implants are predictable and highly successful replacements for missing teeth. Implants can be used to replace single or multiple missing teeth, and to anchor loose dentures. In addition to helping you increase your chewing capacity and fill missing spaces, the implants help to maintain your jaw bone. After teeth are removed, the bone that supports the former tooth root will resorb and disappear, but implants can stop this process.

Implant structure

The dental implant has different components. The implant body is a titanium-coated metal piece that takes the form of the tooth root. The implant abutment connects the implant body to the implant crown. We both place implant bodies into your jaw bone, as well as restore them with crowns a few months later.
