What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a device consisting of a piece of titanium and resembles a screw. This screw like device is used to mimic a natural tooth root. Implants are also used for a secure point when it comes to replacing the crown of the tooth. Dental implants offer a long-lasting tooth replacement that resembles the natural tooth’s shape, size and colour.
