A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically implanted into your jaw. An artificial tooth goes on top of the 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, making them an excellent, long-term option.
Another benefit of dental implants is that they prevent bone recession, which is common in people who have lost teeth. The titanium post goes where the tooth root used to be, and strengthen the bone.
For patients missing all of their teeth, implants can be used to anchor dentures, providing a more secure fit. Many patients report newfound confidence in themselves, after years of embarrassment caused by missing teeth.
