Dental Implants

Dental implants can solve a range of dental problems, including missing teeth and denture issues. But not every dental implant provider has equal expertise. When you choose Allegheny Health Network (AHN) for dental implants, you get access to highly trained surgeons who have the experience and knowledge needed to effectively treat oral diseases and facial trauma.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are meant to serve as a type of artificial tooth root. They offer the closest thing (in look and function) to your real teeth.

During dental implant surgery, a surgeon:

  1. Places the implant into your jawbone — it stays in place because it bonds with the bone that’s there 
  2. Attaches an artificial tooth (called a crown) to the implant
  3. Secures the crown with a connective piece called an abutment

Many dentistry professionals see dental implants as the future of dentistry care. They feel this way because implants are effective and can solve many dental problems. Dental implant surgery is largely considered a safe and effective treatment when performed by a trained physician.
