What a dental implant is… A dental implant has two parts: a root made of biocompatible metal and a custom-made tooth crown which is attached to it.

How it works

  • The root is anchored permanently in your jawbone, preventing future bone loss.

  • The crown does not rely on other teeth for support & doesn’t affect surrounding healthy teeth.

  • An implant can replace one tooth or two, or the teeth in an entire jaw.

  • Implants can anchor dentures to prevent shifting & can replace partial dentures & bridgework.

  • Multiple implants & implant-supported dentures require no plates that cover the roof of your mouth.


What you can do… Consider safe reliable easy-care and natural-looking dental implants, and call PGA Center for Advanced Dentistry for a consultation.
