Dental implants replace teeth that have been missing since birth or have been lost due to gum disease, infection, trauma, or decay. Implants are surgically attached to the jawbone and become a permanent part of your mouth. With implants, you will no longer experience the slipping, moving, and irritation of dentures. Dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth because they are made of a metal that is highly compatible with the jawbone. As a result, the implant (a small post that protrudes from the gum) is able to fuse easily with the underlying bone. After a healing period of several months, Dr. Kadiyala will complete the implant procedure by attaching natural and functional tooth structures to the implant components, providing you once again with the comfort and confidence that accompanies a beautiful smile.
