Advantages of Dental Implants

Dental technology has advanced and improved drastically over the years and with this growth has come new methods to replace missing teeth. This is the development of dental implants.

How are Dental Implants Made?

A dental implant is comprised of three separate parts that together form a stabile and natural-looking artificial tooth. The base is the implant portion that is surgically placed in the jawbone.
