Dental implants have revolutionized restorative dentistry. They deliver a completely lifelike look and feel, along with the potential to last a lifetime. At NTFOS, our oral surgeons perform the surgery to place the implant posts in the jawbone and work closely with your general dentist to recreate your smile with natural-looking, long-lasting replacement teeth.
What is a dental implant?
Dental implant technology has made replacing teeth and restoring your smile easier than ever – whether it’s a single tooth or multiple teeth. When a dentist determines that a dental implant is your best option to replace missing teeth, he or she will insert a small titanium post in the socket of a missing tooth. Due to the unique properties of titanium, your bone tissue forms a strong bond with the post and accepts it as a substitute tooth root. Finally, your dentist will position one or more replacement teeth placed atop the post, giving you a strong, stable, and secure tooth in it’s place. Crowns and dentures, often referred to as All-on-Four dental implants are additional options for tooth replacement. If you would like to learn more, read an eBooklet about Dental Implants.

Why choose dental implants?
Dental implants provide a lasting solution to restore an incomplete smile and eliminate the problems caused by an ill-fitting denture. With dental implants, there is no damage to existing teeth, as there is when placing old-fashioned crown and bridgework. (More) Dental implants stop the bone loss that occurs when teeth are missing and deliver all of the benefits of your own teeth in the way they look, feel, and function. You’ll experience a return of full chewing capacity, and you won’t need to use denture paste to keep your teeth in place.
