Frequently asked questions about dental implants, your questions answered.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are prosthetics made of titanium alloy that replace the root of the tooth and support a prosthesis. These prosthetics, once anchored to a healthy bone, provide reliable stability for the patient’s new teeth. Implants are suitable for patients who have lost one, several, or all of their teeth. They contribute towards improving your physical appearance and ability to chew.
