Dental implants are one of the most realistic tooth replacement therapies available. Comprised of a tiny titanium screw and a custom-made replacement tooth, dental implants replace your original tooth in functionality and appearance.
The small titanium screw (or post) is implanted in the bone beneath the missing tooth’s socket. The replacement tooth is attached to this screw creating a bond to your jaw bone that is as strong as your original tooth and root.
Dental implants are often the preferred tooth replacement therapy and only a lack of solid bone under the tooth socket can cause this treatment choice to be rejected.
Your dental implant will look and function like your original tooth – except that it will be impervious to decay.
