A dental implant is an artificial tooth root designed to replace missing teeth. It is implanted in the jaw to hold a replacement tooth or a dental bridge. New technology and titanium allow modern implants to preserve the natural bone. This prevents further damage of tooth loss. Implants can repair your smile and preserve it for years to come.
Advances in implant dentistry over the last decade have made placing dental implants easy. Dental implant surgery no longer requires an operating room and can be done in your dentist’s office. Because of these advances, implant dentistry is shifting from being a dental specialty to a mainstream procedure. Most dentists that perform dental implant procedures use a single, simple unit. Titanium and surface technology allow your natural bone to form structural and functional bonds with the implant. As a result, reliable dental implants function like natural teeth. Properly installed dental implants preserve the jawbone instead of damaging it.
