Dental implants are artificial roots that are placed in your jaw bone. Artificial teeth are then attached to the implants. They are a great option for people who have lost teeth as a result of injury, periodontal disease, infection or decay. They are made of medical grade titanium that is compatible with your jaw bone, and can support crowns or bridges that feel, look and function just like natural teeth. They can also be used to support dentures and eliminate a lot of problems and irritation patients have with removable dentures.
