A dental implant is a titanium screw that is anchored into the jawbone. The screw takes the place of the tooth root and bone grows tightly around the screw.
No, dental implants are fixed solidly in the bone and allow teeth to be replaced in a manner that is closest to natural teeth.
Implants can be placed just a few minutes, with the whole process taking only a couple of hours. It is quick, easy, and less invasive. Standard implant surgeries can take up to an hour and can cause more trauma.

Dr. Jay St. Charles and Dr. Ariana Godoy are the only doctors in the Palm Harbor area who offer this evolutionary less invasive process that is quick and easy. You won’t find a more cost-effective solution.
One or two missing teeth will require one implant per tooth. Depending on the placement of the implants and the volume of bone density in your jaw, as few as two implants can be used to support a four-tooth bridge.
Almost anyone who is missing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all teeth is a candidate for dental implants. What is the success rate of dental implants? For a healthy individual with good oral hygiene and good health, dental implants are predictably successful with reported success rates of around 95 percent.
