Dental Implants

What is a Dental Implant?

Think of dental implants as artificial tooth roots, similar in shape to screws. When dental implants are placed in your jawbone, they bond with your natural bone. They become a sturdy base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called crowns.

A connector – known as an abutment – is placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support your crowns. The crowns are custom-made to match your natural teeth and fit your mouth.

 

 

Dr. Brad Sammons has done extensive training in placing dental implants. He has also had detailed training on restoring dental implants with Cerec same day crown restorations.
