A dental implant is for a patient that is missing one or more teeth. There's a variety of ways implants can be utilized. An implant can be utilized for someone who's missing a single tooth, and they want to replace that tooth to be able to have that aesthetic result, as well as be able to chew normally. There are also people who use implants with multiple missing teeth, and you can place a bridge on the implants. Additionally, implants can be used to support dentures, so that patients don't have to worry about dentures falling out. Many patients are surprised about how little pain is involved in getting a dental implant placed. I've had numerous patients tell me that getting the implant placed was actually a lot less painful than having the tooth taken out.
The Advantages Of Dental Implants
Compared to other tooth replacement options, dental implants feel, look, and function more like your natural teeth.
Because dental implants replace the roots of missing teeth, they also help prevent bone and tissue loss, helping you look younger!
