A dental implant is considered the most natural functioning option to replace missing teeth. Titanium implants have been used in dentistry for over 40 years with excellent long-term success.
Dr. Bradshaw works with several different surgeons to place the implants below the gums into the jawbone. Through a process called osseointegration, the implants become fused to the bone and gives the feel of real teeth. Implants can also be used to help secure dentures and partials in addition to crowns and bridges.
Dental implant patients need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support implant placement.
