Dental implants are replacement titanium tooth roots that are implanted into the jaw. A false tooth is then attached to the exposed end. The procedure behind the implantation is smooth; in fact, many people who get dental implants in Mesa claim that it is painless.
Unlike dentures and dental bridges, dental implants stimulate the nerves in the jaw. This stimulation tricks the brain into thinking that there really is still a tooth in the area. As a result, the bone loss mentioned in the UCONN article does not occur.
