A dental implant is an option to replace a missing tooth or to provide greater stability for a denture.  A small titanium implant is placed into the bone and allowed to heal (3-6 months).   Once the implant has integrated into the bone, the dentist can restore the implant with a prosthetic crown or the necessary prosthesis.
