Do you place dental implants?

Dental implants are one of the most important advances in technology we’ve seen in a long time. There are several good reasons for the popularity of dental implants – they resolve the esthetic problem of a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth, are completely functional, and act and look just like a natural tooth.

The secret to the success of dental implants is the small titanium post that acts as a replacement root. Titanium is a biocompatible material, which simply means that it’s easily accepted by the body. This allows the implant to integrate completely within the bone and tissue in your jaw.

When the implant has fully integrated, the process is completed by creating a dental crown that’s securely attached to the implant. The result is a strong and durable replacement that acts and looks like a natural tooth.

Dental implants are quite remarkable and can provide an additional option in various situations. Implants must be cared for in the same manner that teeth are so it's quite important to maintain regular dental checkups and hygiene visits.
