A dental implant is a small, titanium root replacement. Implants are used to permanently replace single teeth, multiple teeth, or to anchor dentures. Dental implants restore your natural smile and give you confidence. They will never move, slip, or slide like dentures or partials, and you won’t have to worry about ever getting a cavity. They permanently fuse to your jaw through a process called “osseointegration”, and will prevent further bone loss. Implants are often the best way to replace missing teeth and will help prevent shifting and wear of your natural teeth.
