Implants can restore your missing teeth in all areas of the mouth. A dental implant is a titanium post that serves as an artificial root for crown placement. Placement of implants can have many positive effects such as stimulating healthy bone regeneration as well as preserving and enhancing the surrounding bone and gum tissue. Implants may also be used in conjunction with dentures for better retention of the dentures and their overall function. Following their placement, implants are restored with crowns, imitating the natural look of the surrounding dentition.
