A dental implant is a great option to replace a missing tooth or teeth. An implant is made of biocompatible titanium alloy that meshes with your jaw bone to give you an incredibly stable tooth replacement. In most cases, whenever a tooth is lost, the bone where the tooth used to be will shrink over time. A dental implant is a way to help maintain bone, and give you back the chewing efficiency of a natural tooth.
Once an implant is placed in the jaw and allowed to heal, it can be used to anchor a crown, bridge or denture, to give you the look and feel of natural teeth. Dental implants restore lost chewing ability, improve appearance, end embarrassment, and give real self-confidence to patients who need them. Implants can replace one, many, or all of your missing teeth including loose fitting, wobby dentures.
