DENTAL IMPLANTS :
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots surgically placed in your jaw to support a replacement tooth. This replacement tooth is designed to look and feel like your natural tooth, restore the aesthetic appearance of your smile, provide optimal functionality, and reduce your risk of developing other oral health issues. Following the placement of the titanium post in your jawbone, our qualified technicians will design a custom-made crown that is milled from polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) using computer images and impressions of your bite and designed to color-match your remaining natural teeth, resulting in a seamlessly integrated smile and a return to the desired aesthetic and functionality of your natural bite.
At Coastal Jaw Surgery, every patient who walks through our door will receive VIP Treatment delivered by dedicated professionals who are leaders in their fields and ready to provide you with personalized care using the most cutting-edge dental technology available.
