Oral implants are small, cylindrical posts made of a metal called titanium, placed in the bone of the jaw, that serve to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Titanium metal has been clinically proven to promote the growth of bone where they contact one another. Implants are a wonderful treatment option for patients that don't want bridgework or removable teeth. We can successfully place an implant between two healthy teeth without cutting these teeth down for a bridge. Implants more naturally mimic the feel of a real tooth.
