In an age when scientific and technological breakthroughs are commonplace, there should be no surprise at the ability of dentists to replace teeth with stand-ins that look at least as good and work at least as well as the originals. Such replacement is happening more frequently than ever before.
Dental implants are placed in the jaw and become "integrated" (joined) with the bone. They function as a replacement for the roots that once anchored the teeth in place.
Dental implants allow for replacement of missing teeth without involving any adjacent teeth. As well, implants make it possible to replace missing teeth in cases where complete or partial dentures were once the only option.
