In general, a dental implant is an artificial, small screw that is made of titanium and surgically placed into the jawbone. There are many types of dental implants and they have many uses such as:
-Replacement of a single tooth
-Replacement of multiple teeth
-Provide support for a dental prosthesis (denture)
Dr. Holwager will work in conjunction with one of our trusted area specialists to decide if dental implants are the appropriate choice for you. Typically, the specialist will take specialized three-dimensional scans of your bone and place the implant and you will return to our office for placement of the restoration over the implant.
