Implants

Dental implants provide a tooth replacement therapy that mimics nature in that the dental implant and implant crown are designed to mimic the look, feel and function af a natural tooth. Dental implants are made with materials well accepted by the body. The implant itself acts as a root replacement for the missing tooth. Bone forms a natural mechanical bond with the implant. After healing,( bonding of the bone to the implant) the replacement teeth are fabricated and placed on the foundation provided by the implant.
