Implants & Dental Crowns in Albuquerque, NM

Dental implants (A.K.A. tooth implants) utilize titanium alloy post(s) that are surgically placed into a patient’s jawbone as a replacement for a natural tooth root. The posts serve as an anchor for dental crowns, dentures, partials, or other prosthodontic devices that need to be attached to your jaw. Dental implants are not only used for individual tooth replacement, but can also be used when replacing multiple teeth. Tooth implants with attached crowns are the modern method for treating tooth loss because they function like natural teeth and assist in preserving jaw structure by preventing bone loss. Are you ready for a better smile? Our gentle, compassionate cosmetic dentists install implants and dental crowns in Albuquerque, NM.
