Losing a tooth due to trauma, decay, or other damage can leave you feeling far less confident. Modern surgical advancements in dentistry now allow for the predictable replacement of a tooth, using dental implants. An implant replaces the lost tooth root, acting as a sturdy anchor, for an attractive Crown and/or Bridge restoration that looks and functions like a natural tooth. 

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are titanium screws that function as artificial tooth roots. They are placed into the jaw, becoming firmly integrated with the bone, to allow for a Crown, Bridge, or Denture, to be connected. Dental implants have become the gold standard for replacement of missing teeth and aesthetic enhancement.

At Islay Hill Dentistry, Dr. Eric Walters works closely with a team of highly skilled oral surgeons to plan and perform implant surgery. Once the implant is fully healed/integrated, Dr. Walters creates a customized restoration that looks and feels natural —restoring your smile.
