Here are some essential keys to understanding dental implants:

-Over the last 40 years, dental implants continue to be one of the biggest developments in dentistry according to the American Dental Association because of their many years of success.

-The dental implant is made of titanium, which is a very durable material and utterly compatible with the human body.

-Dental implants are intended to match your existing teeth so that no one will notice it.

-Dental implants are an enduring option because they are surgically placed into your jawbone and fuse with your natural bone over time creating a strong anchor for your new tooth.

-After the healing process, a dental crown will be made to complete your new tooth, which is custom-crafted to place over the implant and match your teeth looking natural for many years to come.
