Dental implants are artificial teeth attached to the jaw bone using titanium screws. Such implants can replace one tooth or several teeth, using a bridge or implant-retained denture. Once they are fitted, dental implants act like natural teeth and require similar care. It is important to keep up with maintenance appointments for implants so that they remain in good condition. When implants are placed in the jaw, it stimulates the remaining bone to grow and mesh around the metal, along with tiny blood vessels. Once finished the implant-supported tooth replacement looks, feels and functions just like a natural tooth.
