Dental Implants Abroad - cost, prices, reviews
What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are tiny screws made of titanium. They serve as replacements for the teeth roots. The tooth implant is an artificial anchor for the replacement tooth (dental crown or dental bridge). It is installed into the bone of the upper or lower jaw and bond with the bone. Dental implants can replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth. Replacement teeth supported by teeth implants feel, look and function just like natural teeth. Dental implants have a long clinical history and have proven to be one of the best restorative option. Dental implants preserve the integrity of the facial structure and reduce the inconvenience associated with tooth loss.
