What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are cylindrical and / or tapered posts that serve as a substitute for a tooth’s root. They’re usually made of titanium. Oftentimes they’re the best treatment for missing teeth. River Oaks Dental is your local source for professional dental implant work. Backed by decades of experience, we can help you achieve the perfect smile you’ve always dreamed of.
When a damaged or decayed tooth is removed, you lose both the crown and the root. An implant is placed in the jawbone so it can fuse with your natural bone and become a strong, sturdy foundation for replacement teeth.
Implants can be used to replace an individual tooth, or for an implant-supported bridge or denture which contains multiple teeth. They’re the closest thing you can get to a healthy, natural tooth, and allow you to eat, smile, laugh, talk, play, and enjoy all your regular everyday activities with complete comfort and confidence.
If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please contact River Oaks Dental at either of our offices in Aitkin or Deerwood, MN.
