What is an implant?


A dental implant is an excellent treatment for replacing missing teeth. A root form implant is the most common kind of dental implant. It is a small, titanium post that replaces the roots of a missing tooth.

The computer era has brought us a dental technology called digital radiography. With this technology, we use computerized equipment and software to capture x-ray images of your mouth and teeth by exposing a small sensor or plate that feeds the image into a computer. This results in much less exposure to radiation. Click the video to learn more about x-rays.
