Learn About Dental Implants

Dental implants are one of the most popular ways of replacing missing teeth. If you’re thinking about getting them, there are a few things you should know before scheduling your appointment.

Key takeaways:

• Dental implants consist of a titanium screw that acts as a root for the artificial tooth; the post will be topped with a ceramic crown that matches existing teeth.

• To receive an implant, you need to have enough bone in your jaw and be in good health.

• If you don’t have enough bone, you might end up getting a bone graft first.

Talk to your dentist if you have more questions about dental implants.
