A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that anchors your restoration, keeping it securely in place and giving you a durable, natural-looking tooth replacement solution.
Dental implants involve crowns, bridges, or a set of dentures that attach to your implant. It restores the function of the natural tooth or teeth lost to injury or illness. You once again have the freedom to chew food, speak well, and smile confidently.
