A dental implant is a permanent, stable solution to replace one or more missing teeth. An implant looks just like your natural teeth, so you can smile and eat your favorite foods with confidence.
A missing tooth can be uncomfortable or embarrassing. Even more important, a missing tooth can lead to oral health problems. Your teeth keep each other in alignment. When a tooth is missing, the surrounding teeth may shift and loosen, changing your bite and increasing your risk of gum disease and tooth decay.
A dental implant restores your healthy smile. A titanium post is surgically placed in the jawbone. After a short healing period, during which the bone bonds with the biocompatible post, the implant restoration is attached to the post. Depending on your needs, the restoration might be a dental crown, bridge, or denture. Each implant is custom-made for your specific needs. With proper care, a dental implant can last a lifetime.
