Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone where there is a missing tooth. There are several applications for implants in dentistry. Along with replacing single missing teeth, they can also be used to help fill longer spans of missing teeth, and they can help to secure dentures in the mouth. Once it is determined that implants are a good option for you, and after your implants have been placed, Dr.Ventresca can build the artificial, natural- looking restorations upon these titanium posts. The goal is that the implants will improve overall function, and contribute to improving your overall aesthetics.
