The use of dental implants has been one of the most significant developments in the dental field for tooth replacement. Before dental implants, dentures were the only alternative to replacing missing teeth.

Dental implants are synthetic structures, usually made of titanium and ceramic, that are placed in the area of the tooth where the root would normally be. Implants are secured to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone to act as a foundation for an artificial tooth. Implants can also be used to secure a permanent bridge, and also to attach dentures. 

Dental implants are so well designed that they look almost exactly like real teeth, and also feel like real teeth to the patient. Implants are a long-term investment and with good hygiene and regular dental care, implants can last a lifetime. They give the patient the freedom of not needing removable dentures.

If you are experiencing discomfort, feel that your implant is loose, or if the crown has cracked or broken, come in right away for an examination. It is important to have the implant evaluation right away so that further problems or infections are avoided. Implants are deeply imbedded in your jaw, so it is vital to take good care of them.
