What are Dental Implants?

In this video Dr. Clay Keith explains what a dental implant is and how the tooth replacement can be used to perfect your smile. You can find Dr. Keith at The Center for Implants and General Dentistry near Tyler, Texas.


Implants allow dentists to replace missing teeth and to serve as an anchor for various dental prostheses such as a crown, bridge, or denture device. The key to implants is having them placed correctly, you want to trust this procedure in the hands of a dentist who has been trained, has done them before, and is confident in their work. The placement of implants is a process, and you don’t want a step in this process missed or sped up.
