Dental Implants are made of titanium (there are newer ceramic implants but their use is more limited) and placed into the jawbone. They work in a number of different ways but ultamately they attach something to the bone. I say something since this can range from a single tooth, to an entire arch of teeth.
For this blog post, I would like to focus on Snap on Dental Implants or Snap on Dentures as one of the types of dental implants. If you would like to know more about the multiple different types please read our implant page here. Snap on Dental implants is more less a system - where with 2 implants (or more sometimes) are placed in the lower jaw and a strong metal reinforced denture is placed to attach to the implants.
