Our team at Bay Oral has years of experience and training in dental implant surgery.
Dental implants are titanium posts surgically placed under the gum tissue and into the jaw bone. The purpose of the implant is to replace the root of a missing tooth. Over a period of several months, the bone bonds to the implant creating a stable foundation for your dentist to then attach the prosthetic tooth (otherwise known as a crown) to. You also may have heard of mini implants. Mini implants can be used as a temporary solution but are not FDA approved as a permanent anchor for crowns and dentures.
When it comes to dental implant surgery, you should consult an Oral Surgeon who performs this procedure on a daily basis.
