What are dental implants?It’s the closest thing to a replacement tooth!
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium that is gently placed into the space where a tooth used to be. This fixture is then covered with a precision-made and natural-looking porcelain restoration to restore your smile.
- Replace one or more teeth without affecting bordering teeth.
- Support a bridge and eliminate the need for a denture.
- Provide support for a denture, making it more secure and comfortable.
