Dental implants represent the best and most modern approach to restore missing teeth. They provide a foundation for replacing teeth and come the closest to replicating the look, feel and function of natural teeth. With implants, you can once again smile and speak with renewed confidence and enjoy eating your favorite foods.
A dental implant is a replacement for the root of a natural tooth. It is a small biocompatible, medical-grade titanium post that is surgically placed in the jaw bone. After placement the bone soon begins fusing with the implant to form a stable, secure anchor for a replacement tooth.
Dental Implants are useful for restoring a single tooth, multiple teeth or even complete arches providing unrivaled stability for crowns, bridges and a complete set of teeth. If placed within a short period of time after tooth loss, they can help preserve facial structure and prevent bone deterioration which occurs soon after a tooth is lost. However, dental implants can still replace teeth that have been missing for a longer period of time though additional procedures may be indicated to prepare the site for a dental implant.
If you are struggling with tooth loss and looking for the best solutions for replacement of missing teeth without compromising the integrity of adjacent teeth, dental implants are a great solution.
