Memphis Dental Implants InsuranceDental implants are increasingly becoming the preferred option for replacing missing teeth, whether you are missing a single tooth or several.

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots surgically embedded in the jaw. The implant fuses with the bone, creating a secure foundation for an artificial tooth, bridge, or dentures. The procedure goes beyond simple cosmetic dentistry and restores your ability to chew and speak clearly with teeth that cannot fall out or even slip and slide.

If you have missing teeth, you may have questions about the cost of implants. The dentists at Southern Dental Implant Center, serving the Memphis area, would be happy to explai

They allow people to chew properly, speak clearer, and feel better about the overall appearance of their smile. Smokers, however, are a special case.

Bone Grafting before Dental Implant Surgery
