Dental implants are titanium posts inserted in to the jaw bone, with an abutment and crown fitted on top. They appear like natural teeth and are a permanent solution which you maintain by regular brushing and flossing.

Key takeaways:

–  Dental implants act as natural teeth, preventing bone loss from the jaw bone.

–  They are easier to eat with compared to dentures and do not require adhesives or special cleaners.

–  Anyone considering dental implants will need to be examined by a dentist to evaluate their compatibility.

“Implants can replace one tooth or an entire mouthful of teeth. If you are interested in the possibility of getting dental implants, the sooner you act, the more likely it is that you’ll have enough bone and be a good candidate for the procedure.”
