If you have suffered from tooth loss, implant dentistry can restore the function and cosmetic appearance of your teeth. Dental implants are metal anchors which function as artificial tooth roots. They are surgically placed in the jaw bone. Small posts are then attached to the implant, which protrude through the gum. These posts provide a stable attachments for artificial teeth. Dental implants can be used in a variety of situations, including replacement of a single missing tooth, restoration of multiple teeth, or to support a denture or complete set of new teeth.
