What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the gold standard for replacing missing teeth, offering a permanent solution that replicates the look, feel, and function of natural teeth. These titanium posts are surgically placed into the jawbone, where they fuse with the bone over time, providing a stable base for artificial teeth.

Benefits of Dental Implants

The Benefits of Dental Implants Include:

  • Natural Appearance: Implants are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
  • Enhanced Oral Health: They help preserve the jawbone and prevent bone loss.
  • Improved Functionality: Implants allow for better chewing and speech compared to other tooth replacement options.
  • Longevity: With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
