Dental Implants have given us the ability to replace missing teeth with a prosthesis that is virtually identical and in some ways better than the original tooth.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root used in dentistry to support a porcelain tooth or bridge. A dental implant can also be used to help keep a denture from moving.
Virtually all dental implants placed today resemble an actual tooth root and are placed within the bone. This allows the dentist to create an esthetic restoration that allows the patient to smile, chew and function more comfortably than old fashioned removable or fixed dentures and bridges. Dental implants have become the natural way to replace missing teeth today.
