A dental implant is a small titanium fixture that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. The implant is placed in the bone of the upper or lower jaw and allowed to integrate with the bone and serve as an anchor for the replacement tooth. A crown is then cemented onto the implant giving a beautiful, natural appearance.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth. Implant supported replacement teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth. Dental implants are a proven restorative option with a long clinical history. Dental implants preserve the bone in the jaw and the integrity of the facial structure.
