A dental implant is a titanium metal replacement for a root of a tooth that is surgically implanted into the jawbone.  As the body heals for after the placement, the bone around the implant fuses to the implant.  After the healing phase is complete, the implants are used to anchor crowns, bridges or dentures.  If you are missing one or more teeth, you’ll want replacements that are as natural as possible.  The professionals at the Yonge and Eglinton centre dental clinic can easily assess if you are an ideal candidate for implants.
