Dental implants are often the best treatment for heavily compromised or missing teeth. When a damaged or decayed tooth is removed, both the visible part of the tooth, called the crown, and the root are lost leaving a void to be restored.
A dental implant is placed in the jawbone that fuses with your natural bone to become a strong foundation for replacement teeth. Implants can be used to replace an individual tooth, support an implant-supported bridge, or other fixed prostheses designed to restore multiple teeth.
Once the process is complete, dental implants look & function like healthy, natural teeth. They will allow you to confidently enjoy all of your regular activities (e.g. eat, speak, smile, etc) of everyday life without thinking about your teeth.
