Dental implants permanently replace missing teeth. Implants consist of titanium posts, topped with artificial restorations. The posts are surgically placed in the jawbone to function as a tooth "root.” The posts extend from the jawbone through the gums, and are topped with restorations, such as crowns or bridges, that resemble natural teeth both in appearance and function.
