What are dental implants?
Modern dental implants are small titanium screws that replace and function like natural tooth roots. Dental implants are gently placed during a surgical procedure. Once in place, they allow your dentist to mount replacement teeth onto them. They are made of a material that is not harmful or toxic to living tissue, your body will easily accept them.
Dental implants are widely considered to be the most successful method of tooth replacement used today, benefitting patients in a number of ways.
Dental implants offer you many advantages
