Dental implants are used as an artificial tooth root replacement. These implants are permanent fixtures made of titanium posts which are anchored to the jawbone and topped with individual replacement teeth or a bridge that screws or cements into the posts. Dental implants are very durable and will last many years. With Dental Implants, a structural and functional connection occurs between the living bone and the implant. A variation on the implant procedure is the implant-supported bridge, or implant-supported denture. Implants are very durable and will provide a significant improvement in the ability to chew food and will fill more comfortable than a crown. Dental implants can also help restore your smile if your natural teeth have been lost due to injury or disease.
