A dental implant is a titanium post (like a tooth root) that is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line that allows your dentist to mount replacement teeth or a bridge into that area. Dental implants also benefit general oral health because they do not have to be anchored to other teeth. As a dentist specialist, Dr. Pumphrey and Dr. Shuster spent 3 additional years of training to specialize in the field of implants.
Ceramic (Zirconia) Implants
Zirconia dental implants are typically marketed as a non-metal, “ceramic” material that is white in color like natural teeth and has all the same advantages as traditional titanium implants.
