Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. A titanium post is inserted into the jawbone, similar to the positioning of the previous tooth root. Bone fills in around the implant, making it strong and able to withstand the forces of the jaw. Once enough healing and bone growth have taken place, the implant can be restored to function as a natural tooth with an abutment and a crown. Implants can also be used to support bridges and dentures if multiple teeth are missing. For more info, contact our Orlando dental office today!
