A dental implant is a cylinder of titanium about the size of a tooth’s root which is placed in the bone. The bone will then fuse to the implant and can then be used as an anchor to replace one tooth or several teeth or even be used to anchor a complete set of dentures. Dental implants are not for everyone but for the right patients, they work extremely well and give the patient great comfort and optimum esthetics. Drs. Sanders and Loe welcome the opportunity to have patients come in to be evaluated for the possibility of using dental implants to replace missing teeth.
