What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a tooth replacement option we offer at Alaska Dental Arts to permanently, aesthetically replace your missing teeth. The dental implant is a small titanium post or screw that is implanted into the jawbone in a surgical treatment. During a period of healing, the gum tissues will heal and the bone will fuse with the implant in a process known as osseointegration. After your smile has healed for a couple of months, our skilled dentist will place the dental implant restoration. Based on your specific dental needs and goals, your implant restoration may be a custom-made bridge, crown, full denture, or partial denture.
