Are You A Candidate for Dental Implants in Houston?

dental implants in houstonIf 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.
