If you have any missing teeth, a missing single tooth, or lost all your teeth due to decay, gum disease or simply age you should consider the exciting possibility of dental implants.
A dental implant is a titanium alloy post, which is surgically placed in to the jaw and functions as a replacement for your tooth root.
Titanium alloy is a biologically safe substance which the body accepts as its own. It easily fuses with the bone and gum tissue to support the crown or bridge restoration. Dental Implants can also stabilize lose dentures. With dental implants the cosmetic and functional results are as good as natural teeth and can last for many years.
