Nothing can take place of a healthy set of natural teeth. But if you have missing teeth and want a solution that is close to your natural teeth as possible, dental implants are the modern day best option for you. Implants have been used for more than a quarter century. It is an ancient art refined and now its use is quite easy and predictable. Implants are posts or cylinders, which are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaws where they function as a sturdy anchor for replacement teeth. They are made of Titanium, a strong, lightweight metal, and are readily accepted by the human body.
