Dental implants have become a great treatment option for many patients who are have lost one or more teeth. A dental implant is a replacement tooth “root” made of medical grade titanium. Once the implant is placed, a porcelain bridge or crown is attached. Teeth restored with dental implants are natural looking, very stable and strong. Patients with dental implants can eat, smile and laugh without fearing that their denture may click or slip or that their bridge will trap food.
