What are dental implants?
Dental implants, or tooth implants, are the most common procedure in the dental world. The procedure is simple, easy and effective in maintaining the functionality and aesthetic of your teeth, keeping your smile as natural as possible. A dental implant is a piece of metal, usually titanium that is fixed into the jawbone where the missing tooth is. An artificial tooth, or crown, is attached to the screw to help to fill the gap in your teeth. The false tooth will be made to look like your other teeth, to ensure maximum comfort and discretion. You won’t even remember that it’s there.
