What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a modern way to permanently replace missing teeth. A dental implant is a small post or screw created from titanium. This implant is surgically inserted into the jawbone where the missing tooth was located. The jawbone fuses with the dental implant, forming a strong foundation for the dental implant restoration. After a period of healing, we will place your dental implant restoration at the dental office of Dolnick and Associates. The implant restoration is typically a dental crown designed to fit on top of the implant in order to replace the portion of the tooth that is visible above the gums. Once the dental implant restoration has been placed, the dental implant will look and function just like your natural teeth.
