Dental implants are the most advanced treatment for replacing missing teeth. Implants permanently replace a natural tooth by placing a small titanium post into the jaw under the gumline which is then used to support a tooth, bridge or denture. The post fuses with the bone, creating a custom-fitted tooth, bridge or denture secured to the implant, which holds them firmly in place.
