WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Dental implants provide a permanent solution for replacing a single tooth, several teeth, or all your teeth. They are among the most successful dental treatment options available and we offer them at our San Diego dentist office in La Mesa.
Dental Implants are manufactured biocompatible root replacements for missing teeth. Decades of research and testing have gone into creating the types and sizes of dental implants Dr. Gray will help choose for you at his La Mesa dentist office. Tooth implants replace the natural tooth root, and can be used in either the upper or lower jaws.
Dental implants are made of titanium or other materials that are well-suited for use in the body. The dental implant is attached to the jawbone and gum tissue to create a stable base for one or more custom artificial replacement teeth or dental crowns. The replacement tooth will look and feel natural. A full denture or fixed bridge can also be anchored for better stability and comfort.
