Dental Implants: What are they?
Trauma, decay, and gum disease are all various reasons for people losing their teeth. Regardless of the cause, dental implants are an effective treatment for creating a shining, functional smile.
In the case that you have a missing tooth or teeth, Dental Implants may be used as an alternative to dentures or bridges.
Dental Implants are artificial roots made of titanium metal that are screwed into the upper or lower jaw, bonding with the bone to become an anchor. They replace the root of your natural tooth, then an artificial replacement tooth is attached to the implant once the implant is healed. Strong, healthy bone is necessary to keep the implant held in place.
With Dental Implants, you can get back to your day to day life with the ease of comfortable implants that look just like your natural teeth. Dental implants are a convenient and proven restorative option to maintain your smile.
