How Dental Implants Help Restore Your Smile

Dental implants are a sturdy and secure option for replacing missing teeth. An implant is a titanium post inserted into the jawbone, topped by a dental crown — creating a new tooth that looks, feels, and functions just like a natural tooth.

Your dentist can discuss dental implants and whether you qualify for this solution to missing teeth.

Key takeaways:

  • Dental implants are permanent and with the proper care should not need replacing.
  • Your dentist can use dental implants to replace a missing tooth or several missing teeth.
  • By getting a dental implant you prevent the loss of jaw bone caused by a missing tooth.
