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

When possible, many dentists recommend using dental implants to replace missing or extracted teeth. Unlike other treatments, implants connect with the jawbone to provide a naturally sturdy and healthy tooth replacement.

For our Memphis area patients who lack the needed tissue but are still interested in getting implants, we offer a bone grafting procedure that can adequately prepare you for the next step.

Why Is Bone Grafting Necessary?


Dental implants are meant to provider a sturdy base so replacement teeth can function like real teeth. This means they dont just sit above your gums like traditional
