What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a medical-grade titanium post inserted beneath the gum tissue into the jawbone which then fuses with the bone and acts as a replacement for the root of a missing tooth. A custom-made crown is affixed to the post to match the existing teeth which results in a natural and secure replacement.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or all of the teeth. In all these cases dental implants enjoy the highest success rate making them the best long-term solution. Although the initial cost may be higher than other options, an implant will never decay or require a root canal and will outlast any other dental prosthesis.
