Dental Implants have become a common and predictable way to replace missing teeth. A dental implant is a titanium root which is placed in the jaw. It takes about 2 to 3 months for the dental implant to become fixed in the jaw. After this period, a tooth can be fabricated out of porcelain to be fixed on top of the implant. The porcelain tooth looks and feels natural and functions like any other tooth in your mouth.
