A missing tooth can create many different health and dental problems. Not
only can the space be unsightly, but the adjacent teeth can shift out of their
position causing periodontal problems and misalignment of your bite. These
conditions can lead to further tooth loss. Therefore, replacing missing teeth
is an important aspect to maintaining your dental health and an attractive smile.

 

What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a replacement for the root of a missing tooth which can
then be used to retain a crown, bridge or denture. It is ideal for patients who
have lost a tooth or multiple teeth due to decay, gum disease, injury, fracture,
infection or some other cause. The implant is made out of a titanium cylinder
that is surgically inserted into the jawbone. After the implant has been placed,
a custom-made post and crown is made to match the rest of your teeth, and
is attached to the implant.

 

What are the benefits of Dental Implants?
Implants offer several benefits over other replacement options such as
dentures and bridges. Unlike dentures, dental implants are permanent and
are never removed. They become a permanent part of your smile. Dental
implants do not require adjacent teeth to be modified or "capped" to hold the
false tooth in place as dentures do.
