If you are looking for a way to replace a missing tooth that is most similar to your natural one, an implant may be the solution you are looking for!
Dental implants are small, sturdy, titanium posts, that act as the root structure would for a natural tooth. A dental implant is placed into your upper or lower jaw bone. After the bone has grown around the implant, implants can hold a crown, bridge or over-denture just like roots hold natural teeth in place. Implants are very durable and can last a lifetime. They require the same maintenance as natural teeth; this includes brushing, flossing and regular dental check-ups.
A single tooth or a full arch of teeth which have been lost due to injury or disease can be replaced with dental implants. Titanium metal is used because of its compatibility with bone and oral tissues. Implants are a wonderful alternative to dentures and can serve as anchors for bridges. Imagine a confident, natural looking smile that could be yours.
