Are you missing one or more teeth? Would you like to restore your ability to eat, speak, and chew comfortably?
If so your doctor may recommend a dental implant.
Dental implants are permanent, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace one missing tooth, but if you have several missing teeth you may still be a candidate. The results are more permanent, maintain your bone health, and look more realistic.
How They Work: A small titanium screw is surgically placed into the upper or lower jawbone where a tooth is missing. It serves as the tooth root and anchor for the final restoration that is placed over it.
Depending on which teeth are missing and your personal dental needs, your implant restoration might be a dental crown, dental bridge, complete denture, or partial denture. Replacing a missing tooth can restore your smile to optimal health, function, and appearance.
