If you’re missing one or more teeth, you may be interested in tooth replacement with dental implants in Houston. Dental implants are tiny titanium cylinders placed beneath the gum line in the space left by a missing tooth. After implantation, dental implants act as a prosthetic root for the tooth replacement — a crown, bridge, or denture — that is connected to the implant with a special device. Unlike non-implant supported options in tooth replacement, dental implants do not move. And when cared for properly, they can be expected to last the wearer’s lifetime.
