How Dental Implants Work
A dental implant is a small, screw-shaped titanium post used to replace the root part of a missing tooth or missing teeth. Implants also assist in preserving tooth-supporting bone that can deteriorate after tooth loss. Once the surgical healing period is complete (usually 2-4 months), the implants will be restored with a natural looking crown, or in some cases, dentures. With a well documented success rate of over 95%, dental implants are the recommended standard of care for tooth replacement in today's dentistry. With many years of clinical experience, the team at Southpoint Family Dentistry can review and plan your implant-related treatment for aesthetically pleasing and functionally sound results.
