Dental Implants are the best modern method of replacing a missing tooth, or to improve the stability of dentures. The Dental Implant consists of a tooth root made of titanium which is set into the gum, the new crown is then placed on top of it and matched with your other teeth to fix the gap in your smile.
Only your dentist can really decide if Dental Implants are the best choice for you, after a full assessment and evaluation of your mouth and smile. But, if you are missing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or would like to secure your dentures then Dental Implants could be the best option for you.
A Dental Implant is placed into the area where the tooth is missing and can actually prevent further bone loss in the area. In some cases where bone loss is substantial, bone grafting may be required before placement of the Dental Implant.
