Dental Implants

Implants
Whether your missing a single tooth or multiple teeth implants may be the solution. Dental implants are a fantastic way to replace missing teeth and provide a permanent solution to having removable partial or complete dentures. Dental implants (usually titanium) act as artificial roots. They are surgically placed by a dentist, oral surgeon or periodontitis. An artificial tooth is then attached.
