Dental implants are a safe, practical and well-established treatment for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants are designed to support one or more false teeth. The process is simple. A titanium screw is inserted into the jawbone to replace the root of the missing tooth, and a re-placement tooth is ultimately affixed to the screw. Over time, the bone grows onto the implant and fuses to it, resulting in a tight, secure and healthy fit that will last for years. Implants can be used to replace one missing tooth or an entire set of teeth. Moreover, with modern dental implant procedures, implants are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
