Are you missing teeth? Are you looking for a tooth replacement option that is more secure than dentures? Dental implants are an excellent choice for replacing missing teeth. A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed in the jawbone to replace the root of the missing tooth. After a period of healing, your dentists will complete the implant by placing a dental implant restoration. Based on your personal dental needs, your custom-made restoration may be a dental crown, dental bridge, partial denture, or full denture. Dental implants can improve your smile by:
- Preventing teeth from shifting in the mouth
- Improving your ability to chew, eat, and speak properly and confidently
- Halting jawbone atrophy that occurs when teeth are missing
- Enhancing the beauty of your smile
- Restoring lost facial volume
