If you’re missing teeth, did you know that you have options beyond dentures and bridges? Dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth, and unlike other tooth replacement methods, they don’t require any special care. Dental implants consist of artificial roots that are placed directly into the jaw and fuse with the bone through a process called osseointegration. Artificial teeth are then attached to the roots. Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth or an entire mouth’s worth of lost teeth.
