- A wise investment
How are implants placed?
Dental implants are placed into the bone of the jaw. This allows the process of osseointegration to occur. Osseointegration is when bone of the jaw begins to grow around the implant. This holds the implant in place as a strong and durable foundation. After the implant is solidified into the bone of the jaw, it is then restored. This is achieved with the placement of a dental crown, a bridge, or a full denture. All of this depends on the desires of the patient and their specific and unique situation.
Why choose dental implants?
Implants are the go-to option for patients seeking restoration of their smiles. Implants are known for their long lifespan and durability when compared to alternatives.
