Dental Implants prosthetic titanium screws that are atraumatically inserted into the bone of the jaw to take the place of the roots of natural teeth that have been lost or extracted. Dental implants can be used to support a single tooth crown, a bridge, or a full set of dentures. Titanium posts are used as they are strong, non-toxic, and biologically compatible with the tissues of the mouth and body. Implants have the strength, appearance, and feel of your natural teeth, so eating, speaking and smiling are not at all compromised. The below graphic demonstrates how an implant would appear if the jaw bone were exposed, as well as how it is restored with a tooth-color crown attached.
