More than 3 million Americans have replaced missing teeth with dental implants. But what are dental implants? And why are they considered to be one of the most reliable teeth replacement solutions available?

Dental implants allow us to replace the root of a missing tooth. The artificial tooth root is gently placed into the jaw bone, and in time, the bone actually heals around the dental implant. Your body mimics the way a natural, healthy tooth would be held in place.
