What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium that are inserted into the jawbone to replace missing natural teeth. Implants and their attached crowns closely resemble the look and function of real teeth. They can also make an attractive alternative to dentures and bridges. Today’s dental implant techniques can replace one or more missing teeth. In fact, an entire set of porcelain teeth can be carried on dental implants.
