Implants

Dental Implants essentially resemble the root of a natural tooth.  Once placed, an implant can be used for many different purposes:

1.  To replace a single missing tooth 

2.  Two or more implants can be used to create an implant supported bridge to replace several teeth 

3.  Multiple implants can be placed to recreate an entire smile


4.  Implants are also used as anchors to give complete and partial dentures a very secure "Snap-In" fit

5.  Implants are occasionally used as an anchor during orthodontics to help move other teeth
