Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace the root portion of a missing tooth. The
implant bonds to the jaw bone and becomes the base for the replacement tooth. Implants can be
used to replace from just one to several missing teeth. To find out if dental implants are the
right option for you, make an appointment at Rosemarie Kirkland Dental in Mackay.
