The standard of care for replacing missing teeth used to be a partial denture or a bridge, but today dental implants frequently offer a superior solution. Dental implants can open the possibilities for natural looking crowns and bridges.
Video: How Dental Implants Work
Dental implants are made of biocompatible titanium and are cylindrical in shape. Dental implants are placed below the gum line. Over a few months the bone grows securely around the implant (known as osseointegration), becoming a stable base to support individual replacement teeth, bridges or dentures.
