A dental implant is a method of replacing one or more teeth.
Dental implants have the appearance, feel, and function of real teeth!

A dental implant is made up of three major components: the titanium screw, the abutment, and the crown.
The screw is inserted into your jaw bone, the abutment is attached to the screw, and the crown is the tooth that is held in place by the abutment.
When bone and implant merge, they form a strong foundation for your new teeth.

The titanium screw, once placed into your jaw bone, effectively serves as your new tooth root.
