Dental Implants are the most advanced way to replace a missing tooth. An implant is placed into the jaw to replace a missing tooth. A crown is then placed on the top of the implant. Implants look and function much like natural teeth do. By choosing a dental implant to replace a missing tooth, the surrounding teeth are not altered in anyway, making this the most conservative way to replace missing teeth.
Dental implants can also be used to anchor a denture. By allowing the denture to be attached to 2-4 implants, its stability and retention are significantly improved, allowing easier eating and speech. Imagine, no more worrying about your dentures flying out of your mouth with a simple sneeze!
