Dental Implants are the best way to replace missing teeth. Teeth can be lost due to trauma, decay, failed root canals or periodontal disease. Dental Implants are the only tooth replacement option that replace the ENTIRE tooth and not just the top of the tooth. Dental Implants replace the root and the crown of the missing tooth. Because the implant is placed into the jawbone, the bone levels stay healthy. Adjacent teeth are not damaged like old fashioned bridges or partial dentures.
What is a Dental Implant?
This patient lost a tooth due to a failing bridge. She decided to replace the now two missing teeth with dental implants. She can eat, brush and floss her implant teeth just like natural teeth.
