A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically implanted into the patient’s jaw. They replace the root of the missing tooth, which helps the jawbone maintain its density and prevents bone recession. An artificial tooth is fitted on top of the titanium post.
One of the things that make dental implants so popular is that they blend in so easily with the patient’s remaining teeth. They look and function like natural teeth, and are an excellent, long-term solution.
For patients missing all of their teeth, implants can be used to anchor dentures, providing a much firmer, more secure fit. Many patients report newfound confidence in themselves, after years of embarrassment caused by missing teeth.
