									                           Dental implants offer a permanent, natural-looking solution to missing
                           teeth. A dental implant is a small titanium screw or cylinder which is
                           surgically placed in the upper or lower jawbone, providing a
                           permanent anchor for an artificial tooth. A patient may have a single
                           dental implant for one missing tooth, or several dental implants to
                           replace multiple missing teeth. Unlike dental bridges, the adjoining
                           healthy teeth are not disturbed when placing a dental implant. Dental
implants can stabilize dentures so that they do not shift in the patient's mouth. In addition, in
some cases, a series of dental implants can be placed, thus eliminating the need for a traditional
denture. Please ask Dr. Smith about the other health benefits of dental implants.
