Dental implants allow replacement of the entire missing tooth, which was never before possible. Implant supported replacement teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth.
The most common type of dental implants are root-form implants, which basically means that they are replacement, or substitute tooth roots, used to replace natural tooth roots in areas of the mouth where teeth are missing. These dental implants are made of surgical grade titanium compounds. There are no known allergies to this metal and it has been proven to be very safe as an implant material.
The reason it is so important to replace the tooth root as well as the visible part of the tooth (crown) is that natural tooth roots preserve the bone.
