What is a dental implant?
Solutions like dental implants are small titanium posts surgically implanted into your jawbone. When the implant is in place, it acts as a sturdy foundation for a replacement tooth or bridge. This method of tooth replacement has been used successfully for decades to help patients improve their smiles and oral health. Its versatility makes it a popular solution, as mini dental implants, or full-mouth dental implants, can be used to secure a complete denture into the smile. A traditional implant can replace one or two teeth with a crown or bridge.
