What Are Dental Implants?

What are dental implants?Dental implants are the best alternative to natural teeth. A dental implant is a titanium post that replaces the root of a missing natural tooth. They are placed in the upper or lower jawbone and act as anchors for crowns, bridges, or dentures.

Dental implants function and feel like natural teeth, improve smiles, prevent bone loss associated with missing teeth, and eliminate the need to drill healthy teeth when placing a bridge. Statistics from three decades of clinical experience confirm a success rate of nearly 95% over a five year period for dental implants.
