dental Implants


A dental implant is a titanium cylinder, usually threaded, that is placed into the jaw bone in the approximate site of the missing tooth.  Once the implant has healed with the bone it can be used to support an artificial tooth.  The implant is like an artificial root made of titanium. Dental implants can also replace several teeth or in some cases all of your teeth.  They are also importantly used to help support and retain removable dentures.
