A dental implant is a synthetic tooth root that can be used in combination with a dental crown to replace a missing tooth. Each dental implant is crafted out of a special titanium alloy that fuses directly with your bone in a process called osseointegration. Once you have the implants installed, they appear just like your other teeth, brightening your smile and giving you back your confidence.
Dental implant is the new way to improve the appearance (and other functions) of your teeth due to tooth loss. Missing teeth should be replaced promptly to avoid the development of more complex dental problems that can limit your treatment options.
If not replaced, the adjacent teeth will begin to change their position to fill the gap, which causes other teeth to shift and the bite to become severely misaligned. Bone underneath where the teeth used to be will also be lost and might require an expensive bone graft to stabilize the jaw.
