What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. Dental implants can be placed in either the upper or lower jaws. Due to the biocompatible properties of titanium, a dental implant fuses with the bone and becomes a good anchor for the replacement tooth. 

When Should I Consider Dental Implants?

Given the versatility of this treatment, dental implants can be used in solutions for replacing single or multiple missing teeth, ranging from accidental tooth loss (avulsion) to tooth loss caused by gum disease. During your visit to Appleton Prosthodontics, our dental specialist will conduct a thorough examination of your smile to determine if dental implants are right for your smile.
