Dental implants consist of small titanium screws that act as artificial tooth roots. These screws are surgically placed into your jawbone, and afterward, a prosthetic tooth or teeth are securely attached to the implant.
A dental crown is a custom-made, tooth-shaped cap that covers and restores a damaged or weakened tooth, improving its strength, shape, and appearance. We use state-of-the-art tools and techniques to ensure your new tooth is looking great and lasts for many years to come.
For those living in Plantation, tooth extractions offer a practical solution for addressing a range of dental concerns. While regular dental check-ups are crucial for oral health maintenance, individuals dealing with gum disease can discover some relief through this procedure.
