Dental implants are a revolutionary solution for replacing missing teeth. They consist of titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone, serving as artificial tooth roots. Once the implants integrate with the bone, custom-made dental crowns or prosthetic teeth are attached, creating a natural-looking and functional smile. Dental implants offer numerous benefits, including improved chewing ability, enhanced speech, and a restored appearance. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, providing a long-term and durable solution for replacing missing teeth and improving overall oral health.Book an appointment
