They can also correct gaps in their smile and are an alternative to appliances such as dentures or bridges.
Getting dental implants would involve a series of steps. Any broken or decayed teeth that need removal would be removed by an extraction procedure. In place of the missing teeth, the dentist would place the Titanium implant into the bone socket where the tooth is missing.
