What are dental implants?
A dental implant is a small titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone. Over time, the bone will fuse with the implant, providing a strong and stable foundation for the replacement tooth. Once the implant has integrated with the bone, a custom-made crown, bridge, or denture can be attached to the implant, restoring the appearance and function of the missing tooth.
Dental implants have several benefits over other tooth replacement options, such as bridges and dentures. Unlike bridges, which require support from adjacent teeth, dental implants are self-supporting, secure and allow for a more natural biting and chewing ability.
