A dental implant is one option for replacing a missing tooth or multiple teeth. The implant itself is made of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body. The shape of an implant resembles a screw and is placed in the area of the missing tooth's roots. They provide a stable base for the dentist to place a tooth colored crown. In some cases we can even use implants to stabilize existing full and partial dentures that move around when you eat.
If you have a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth and you would like to find out more about dental implants call and schedule an appointment with Dr. Mefford and Dr. Clayton today.
We would be honored if you selected our team to care for your healthy, beautiful smile.
