Significantly stronger than bridges or dentures, a dental implant offers a single and permanent solution to a lost tooth. The implant is integrated into a jaw with a small titanium screw and over the course of several months naturally bonds with bone.Once the dental implant has integrated with the bone, it can be used to replace a gap due to a missing tooth, via a crown or bridge restoration.

It can also be used to support loose dentures. Mini dental implants can also be used to secure dentures into place, but they are only appropriate under certain circumstances. With dental implants the cosmetic and functional results are as good as natural teeth and can last for many years.
