Dental implants are placed for missing or badly damaged teeth. Titanium, thread-like posts are inserted into the bone acting as conventional tooth roots. To ensure that the titanium post that supports your restoration is in the best possible position, our dentists and team use X-Guide computer-guided implant system technology. This software helps enhance both accuracy and precision. X-Guide also assists the dentist in determining exact angulation and depth of placement, which is critical for avoiding dental anatomy such as the sinus or nerves.
After the placement of the post, our dentists and team attach a dental crown, dental bridge, partial denture or complete denture to restore the health, function and appearance of your smile. Your implants will allow you to eat, speak and smile with confidence.
