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.
