DENTAL IMPLANTS: DIRECTLY INSERTED INTO YOUR JAWBONE
Dental implants are another popular restorative dental procedure for replacing missing teeth. An alternative to bridges, partial dentures and crowns, implants look and feel like natural teeth. Typically constructed of metallic titanium, implants are directly inserted into your jawbone to act like the natural roots of teeth. Periodontists or oral and maxillofacial surgeons are the dental specialists who place implants. The specialists who place crowns or bridges on implants are known as prosthodontists.
