Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Dental Implants are the next best thing to real teeth in that they help those with lost teeth to regain the ability to eat virtually anything and smile with confidence, knowing that their teeth appear natural.
Dental implants themselves are usually titanium posts placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the post, creating a strong foundation to which the dental team can adhere artificial teeth. In addition to a natural look, implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that typically occurs when teeth are missing.
