Are dental implants the right choice for you?
If you have one or more missing teeth, due to an injury or tooth extractions, dental implants may be a viable option for restoring your smile. Dental implants are very common, and are often the best option for replacing your missing teeth.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that replaces the root portion of a missing natural tooth. When placed, it will permanently fuse with the jaw bone and form a strong anchor for a replacement tooth.. Dental implants are often topped with a dental crown, restoring function and providing a natural appearance for tooth replacement. Implants can also be used to stabilize dentures.
