Implants are metal posts or frames that are surgically placed beneath your gums. After placement, the implants fuse to the bone of your jaw and act as artificial tooth roots. A replacement tooth or groups of teeth as with a bridge or denture is then mounted to the implant(s). Implants offer a patient options for replacement of missing teeth that were not available thirty years ago. The dentists at Meadows Dental Group work closely with the surgeons who place the dental implants to restore your mouth to proper aesthetics, form and function.
