The most common type of dental implant is the root form. Root form implants are inserted directly into jawbone where they serve as a solid foundation for restorations such as dental crowns, bridges, or dentures. With this type of dental implant, Fresno dentist Dr. Gregory Miyake can restore the greatest amount of strength and beauty.

Dental implants are inserted directly into your jawbone. After placement, dental implants undergo a process called osseointegration in which the bone in your jaw accepts them as a new tooth root. Once accepted by your jawbone, your dental implants have the potential of becoming a permanent part of your smile. However, the length of time your implants last will depend on how well you take care of them.
