Dental Implants - Multiple Implants
Dental implants are one of the most exciting advances to replace missing teeth. A dental implant is a small screw usually composed of titanium that can be used to support many types of dental restorations. Dental implants can be used to support a single tooth, multiple teeth like in a dental bridge, a removable appliance and even a complete set of teeth. They are even being used to help with orthodontic appliances during tooth movement.
