What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a strong, permanent and very realistic way to replace one or more missing teeth. Not surprisingly, they are becoming extremely popular with patients.
A dental implant is a tiny titanium post which is gently placed into the jawbone. Over time, the bone and the titanium bond together, forming a permanent artificial tooth root.
This artificial implant root can be used to support crowns , bridges , or even dentures , creating a full, natural-looking smile.
