Dental implants are small titanium posts that act as artificial roots. They are inserted into the jaw bone where your tooth is missing. The titanium bonds with the bone, creating a strong foundation for the placement of artificial teeth. They can help you eat naturally, preserve facial contours and structures, and prevent bone deterioration.
If you have lost a tooth, you should consider dental implants. It’s important, not just for aesthetic reasons, but to ensure the gap in your smile doesn’t do further damage.
