A dental implant is a durable solution used to replace missing teeth. It restores both function and aesthetics to your smile. It consists of a small titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone and acts as a strong artificial tooth root. Over time, this post naturally fuses with the bone in a process called osseointegration which creates a stable foundation. Once the implant has fully integrated, a custom-made dental crown is securely attached to the implant, mimicking the appearance and function of a natural tooth.
