A dental implant is an artificial tooth, which looks and works like the real thing and can be used to restore your smile by permanently replacing one or more missing teeth. An artificial titanium root replaces the root of a missing tooth. Dental implants can also save healthy teeth
by eliminating the need to grind down tooth tissue, required by traditional bridgework. They can improve your appearance and smile because when teeth are lost the jawbone shrinks, causing signs of ageing.
