Osseointegration is a term used when bone fuses to a titanium implant. This fusion of bone to the dental implant creates incredible strength, which allows a dental crown to be placed on top of the implant. This replication of a natural root and crown structure allows cleaning of the implant to be less difficult compared with a bridge.
Dental Implants can also be used as an anchoring device for dentures. With only a few implants on the mandible or maxilla, we can anchor a loose fitting denture to ensure a snug fit. The surgical placement of implants are minimally invasive and usually only require local anesthesia. We will provide intravenous sedation free of charge for those patients receiving dental implants at Sedation Dental Center.
