What is a Dental Implant?

Zoomed in image of beautiful smileA dental implant is a replacement tooth that consists of three components:

Dental implants can be used to replace one tooth, several missing teeth, and can even be used as anchors to permanently stabilize dentures.

Benefits of Dental Implants

When the root structure of your teeth is missing, the jawbone can shrink. As a result, your face will appear older than it is. A dental implant consists of a titanium dental implant post that integrates with your jawbone and stimulates it for maintained bone density.

In addition to the aesthetic improvements, dental implants can also preserve your natural chewing function and restore your bite’s full power. Once your dental implants have been placed, you’ll barely be able to distinguish them from your real teeth.
