The closest prosthetic to a strong, natural tooth, a dental implant has both a root and a crown. Many general dentists don’t place dental implants, but Dr. Higginbotham and many of his associates have studied and become certified in dental implant placement surgery, for the convenience of our patients. The process involves placing a small titanium post in the socket left by a missing tooth. Titanium is biocompatible, so jawbone tissue grows onto the post, creating a strong anchor for a dental crown.
