Dental Implants

Overview

A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line that allows your dentist to put a crown or a bridge into that area. An implant once secured, doesn’t come loose like a denture can.

If you are considering implants, you must have:

  • Healthy gums

  • Enough bone to support the implant

If your bone is too thin or soft and unable to support an implant, you may require a bone graft.

If there is not enough bone height in the upper jaw or the sinuses are too close to the jaw, you may require a sinus lift.
