Dental implants are commonly chosen as they look natural, and can be very long lasting with proper care and maintenance. Implants are used to replace missing teeth and help to avoid loss of bone structure in the jaw over time. Anchored in the jawbone with a titanium screw and socket, the visible portion of the implant is made with porcelain or another tooth-coloured material, offering a natural look often indistinguishable from the surrounding teeth.
