WHAT IS A DENTAL IMPLANT?
A dental implant is a cylindrical post, usually made of titanium, that is placed in the jawbone so that it can fuse with your natural bone and become a strong and sturdy foundation for replacement teeth. Implants can be used to replace an individual tooth or for an implant-supported bridge or denture containing multiple teeth.
Your teeth, like your fingerprints, are unique — no one else’s are the same as yours. Many options exist to replace missing teeth, but only one — dental implants — can provide the feel, function and appearance of natural teeth.
