Modern dentistry offers a great way to correct the problem of missing teeth: dental implants. It is a surgical procedure that involves the placement of a titanium screw in the jaw bone and attaching a custom-designed synthetic crown to the screw. These replacement teeth look, feel and act almost exactly like natural teeth. Used instead of conventional crowns and dentures, dental implant technology can help preserve jaw bone strength while providing more comfort and a natural-looking smile.
