Dental Implants are metal posts or frames, usually made of titanium, and used to support a restoration for a missing tooth, helping to stop or prevent jaw bone loss. Posts are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums.
Once in place, and the bone surrounding the implant has had time to heal, the replacement tooth is attached to the post. Implants provide superior benefits:
Implants are stronger than natural teeth and generally last 10-20 years. They are also a more favorable approach than bridgework, since they do not depend on neighboring teeth for support. To receive implants, you need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant.
