Dental Implants

Dental Implants are a better treatment option to replace a single or multiple teeth.

What are dental implants?

A dental implant is a small screw that is placed in your jawbone and acts as an artificial tooth root much like the root of a tooth and can be used to support crowns, bridges and dentures.

Dental Implants are made from titanium, a biocompatible material that integrates well with your body’s tissues. Dental implants were invented decades ago and have undergone significant research and development in the scientific community. They are safe, medically proven, strong and lasting. They offer esthetically pleasing results and applications to suit almost any dental health requirement.

Dental implant protocol has become simplified over the years. Dr. Kerhoulas and staff ensure your complete understanding and comfort throughout all phases of care.
