Loss of teeth from the lower jaw affects your facial structure, making you look much older. Dental implant is the only way to protect the lower part of your face from collapsing. To know in detail more about teeth loss and dental implants, visit

Virtually all dental implants placed today are root-form endosseous implants, i.e., they appear similar to an actual tooth root (and thus possess a "root-form") and are placed within the bone (end- being the Greek prefix for "in" and osseous referring to "bone"). The bone of the jaw accepts and osseointegrates with the titanium post. The osseointegration is the component of this implant procedure that makes it resemble the look and feel of a natural tooth.
