Dental implants predictably replace missing teeth. Dental implants allow us to replace teeth with something that comes right out of the gum tissue just as the natural tooth did prior to it being lost. Dental implants resemble teeth more than any other tooth replacement treatment. Implants can be used to replace one or many teeth. They are made of a titanium alloy making them immune to decay processes and extremely strong. When replacing a missing tooth a dental implant is placed in the jawbone. The implant resembles a tooth’s root structure. After the bone fully grows around the implant an abutment is placed in the implant allowing a crown to be cemented over the top. Implants can also be use to secure partial and full dentures. This treatment can help restore many teeth with only a couple of dental implants.
