Dental implants are an increasingly popular method of replacing missing teeth, especially when both the tooth and its root is damaged, and offer a viable alternative to dentures or crowns for patients who want a solution that feels and performs more like their own teeth.
Implants are attached directly to the jaw through titanium posts, which provide added stability and enhanced usability, and can also help prevent bone loss and gum deterioration.
