What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a replacement for a missing tooth. It is usually made out of titanium and it is surgically placed into the bone where the missing tooth is. Dental implants can be used to replace single teeth, multiple teeth, or as anchors for removable partial dentures or complete dentures. Dental implants are considered the standard of care for replacing missing teeth. They help to preserve the bone. They look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
Dr. Ted Murray, Dr. Kristen Berning, and Dr. Alexia Murray at Exceptional Dentistry are committed to providing our patients the latest in dental implant treatment options. Our office has an i-CAT® Cone Beam 3D scanner used for implant treatment planning. This system allows us to take crisp, clear 3D images of teeth, gums and underlying jaw structure, making it easier for us to diagnose dental conditions.
