A dental implant is a titanium rod that functions as your replacement tooth root.
When placed in your jaw, a dental implant forms a strong attachment with the bone and acts as a support for the replacement tooth. Dental implants are excellent substitutes for teeth, because they look, feel and work just like your natural set.
They also prevent the loss of supporting bone that can occur after tooth extraction. Which, in turn, prevents your face from changing shape post-procedure. With a success rate of over 95%, dental implants are a highly effective option for replacing teeth.
