Implants are used to replace missing roots and support artificial replacement teeth. They are comfortable and look like natural teeth.
A dental implant is an artificial root made of titanium metal. It is inserted into the jawbone to replace the root of the natural tooth. An artificial replacement tooth is attached to the implant. The implant acts as an anchor to hold the replacement tooth in place. If you are in good general health, have healthy gums and have enough bone in the jaw to hold an implant, dental implants might be right for you!
Dental implants can also be used to help hold a denture in place. This can help make your denture more comfortable and stable to eat with.
