Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth - made to match your natural teeth. In most cases, anyone healthy enough to undergo oral surgery or routine dental extraction surgery can be considered for a dental implant. Patients should have healthy gums and sufficient bone to hold the implant. They must also be committed to good oral hygiene and regular dental visits.

A dental implant is a replacement for the root or roots of a tooth. Like tooth roots, dental implants are secured in the jawbone and are not visible once surgically placed. They are used to secure crowns, bridgework or dentures by a variety of means.
Today, dental implants have made it possible for not only denture wearers to do away with that uncomfortable foreign object in their mouths, but is also now the method of choice when it comes to replacing any missing tooth.
