Unlike dental bridges or dentures, dental implants have quickly become the standard in modern dentistry for replacing one or more missing teeth. Made of first-rate titanium, dental implants are synthetic structures placed into the jawbone to function just like a strong, natural tooth root.
Dental implants are the only form of tooth replacement to be permanently anchored into the jawbone and won’t slip, shift or move out of place. Each implant is specially placed to support a natural looking replacement tooth, known as a dental crown or to secure a permanent bridge.

Is A Dental Implant Right For Me?
If you are considering tooth replacement, Dr. Salesky will review certain factors of your dental health including your bone density, immune system and medical history.
Candidates for dental implants can expect a high success rate with the procedure, with results lasting as long as a lifetime. Because each implant and artificial tooth is personalized to your needs, they will look and feel just like your natural teeth.
