¡Rediscover the Pleasure of Smiling!
Don’t let your smile hold you back. If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants can give you the smile you deserve, a smile that matches your natural beauty. A dental implant is a cylindrical and/or tapered post, usually made of titanium, that serves as a substitute for the tooth root.
Dental implants are often the best treatment for missing teeth when you use an experienced implant dentist. When a damaged or decayed tooth is removed, both the visible part of the tooth, called the crown, and the root are lost.
