Dental implants are natural looking replacements for missing teeth that also provide the same function as your natural tooth. A titanium post is placed into your upper or lower jaw bone. After the bone has grown around the implant, approximately 3-4 months, a tooth, bridge or denture is placed. Implants are an ideal option when a patient wants to stabilize a denture, or fill a open space without altering surrounding tooth structure. Here at Manning Crossing Dental, we work in conjunction with many specialists from around to city to meet your needs in providing implant solutions.
