A dental implant is a titanium screw that is surgically inserted into the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental crown, bridge or denture. Titanium has been successfully used in many areas of reconstructive medicine because it naturally bonds to the bone and strengthens it.
While dental crowns may not have the luster of the crowns of royalty, they can have a powerful effect on saving your smile. Often when we don’t take proper care of our teeth, they can wear away and lose their strength and shape. There are a number of things that can contribute to tooth decay including skipping regular dental visits, eating hard candy and the obvious: not brushing one’s teeth.
