Dental implants are a durable, long-lasting solution for tooth replacement.
If you are a candidate for this treatment option, a dental implant is an anchor mounted directly in the bone. We can use dental implants to replace single missing teeth, and support or retain bridges, partial dentures, and even complete dentures. Dental implants for single teeth provide a “tooth-like” solution that are convenient to care for and do not take up additional room in your mouth. You can floss them like regular teeth and are not inconvenienced by additional cleaning steps.
Dental implant anchorage for partial dentures can eliminate unsightly clasps and food traps. For complete dentures, especially on the lower arch, pairs of dental implants can provide remarkable stability and ease of use.
Dental implants are impervious to tooth decay but will still be susceptible to gum disease. Patients with dental implants, even with complete dentures, will still need periodic dental visits to keep them healthy and comfortable.
A missing tooth doesn't have to mean hiding your smile.
