Dental implants are the best tooth replacement available today. Drs. Ramon and Natalie Ortiz, dentists in Las Cruces, recommend dental implants because they preserve and strengthen the jaw bone after tooth loss.
Comprised of a titanium screw, metal alloy post, and lifelike porcelain crown, the dental implant resides in the jaw bone. It transfers substantial physical forces to the bone as the individual bites and chews, effectively exercising It. The bone bonds to the titanium implant through a natural process called osseointegration, the secret behind these amazing prosthetics.
