Dental implants are made of titanium and are surgically placed into your bone. The implant is an anchor that acts as a replacement for the missing root of your tooth. This replacement root can hold a natural looking crown or a set of false teeth in place. Implants are a great alternative to a bridge and are the best way for you to secure a full denture.
If you are missing one tooth or all of your teeth, implants could be for you, as long as you have enough bone in the area of the missing tooth to hold the implant. If you do not have enough bone, a bone graft may be necessary.
Most implant and bone graft procedures are performed by Dr. Lowery, so there is usually no reason to be referred to a second dentist. Implants can help give you back what you have lost.
