What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants consist of several parts – a tiny titanium screw and an artificial replacement tooth. The titanium screw is surgically placed into your jawbone where it will integrate with the bone and act as a strong and stable foundation for your replacement tooth. Once the implant post is healed, a beautiful new tooth will be placed. The implant post and replacement tooth work together to essentially give you a brand new tooth that feels and functions just like the tooth you lost.

The addition of our Galileos 3D Digital Imaging Scanner allows for an incredibly accurate diagnosis and planning for the placement of dental implants. By creating not only a full color, digital x-ray of the entire jaw, but also a 3D facial scan and analysis, underlying problems that may not have been noticed using previously conventional imaging methods can immediately be discovered and avoided. This not only speeds up the process of dental implantation, it also makes the placement of the implants and their treatment course incredibly reliable.
