Implants may be the best option to replace a missing tooth or teeth. A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically implanted into the bone and allowed to heal. After the bone and tissue have healed, a permanent crown is attached to the implant. Implants can also be used to replace multiple missing teeth by attaching a bridge between two implants. They have an additional benefit in that they do not depend on adjacent teeth for support, and do not decay.
