A dental implant is essentially like a tooth root but made out of titanium, one of the hardest metals, and is placed into the area where the tooth should be.
It is important that the placement of the implant into the correct area is exact, as even the smallest of errors can result in difficulties further down the line. This is why it is so important to choose your implant surgeon carefully. To eliminate any errors not only are our surgeons highly trained, but we utilize surgical stents, or even drill guides where necessary to get a precise placement.
Once the implant is correctly placed a porcelain tooth (or crown) is placed over the titanium root (implant), leaving you with a fully functional tooth.
