Dental implants provide a great restoration option for patients who are missing teeth due to decay or extractions. The implants consist of metal frames or posts which are surgically inserted into the bone beneath the gums. To be a viable candidate for dental implants, you must have sufficient bone structure to support the posts.
Once the posts have been placed, they fuse to the jawbone. When the posts can effectively support replacement teeth, custom crown or prosthetics will be mounted, which improves the function and aesthetics of your teeth and mouth.
