What are dental implants?
While nothing beats the security and functionality of the natural teeth you were born with. However, if teeth do need to be replaced, dental implants come very close, as they mimic your natural tooth, right down to its roots. With a dental implant, a dentist will insert a titanium post into your jawbone. The bone will integrate (or grow) up around the post form to fuse it into place for superior stability. Once the implant has fused to the bone, the Dr. Pappa will place a beautiful crown over the root form. Implants look and feel much like a natural tooth, and patients are generally happiest with this option, as it is the closest option for replacing a broken, missing, or unrestorable natural tooth with an beautiful, functional, and long lasting alternative option.
