Dental Implant

Missing teeth can be replaced with molded fake teeth with dental implants. These implants function like regular teeth and are attached directly to the jaw bone.¬† They are attached to the jaw bone with a titanium root device like a metal screw. Your bone tissue will fuse to the titanium. Implants may feel a little different when chewing because they don’t have the nerves and ligament support that your other teeth have.

Known has the father of modern implant dentistry, Dr. Leonard Linkow started doing dental implants as early as 1952. He has published 12 books and registered 36 patents.
