What is a dental implant
A dental implant is a titanium metal replacement for a root of a tooth that is implanted in the jawbone.

As the body heals for approximately two to six months after the surgery, the bone around the implant fuses to the implant through a process called osseointegration.

After the healing phase is complete, the implants are used to anchor crowns, bridges, or dentures.

Dental implants are the most natural replacement for a missing tooth. For more information call us at 207 255-8601.
