To put it frankly, dental implants offer an enduring solution to your missing tooth woes. In fact, dental implants once placed into your jawbone becomes fused to your bone, granting a strong support system like a root for your new tooth. It starts by having the implant surgically placed inside your jawbone. Over time, the implant becomes strong and is completed with a dental crown on top that looks natural and acts as a natural tooth.
