Dental implants are today's method of choice for replacing missing teeth. They are long lasting, natural in appearance, and promote jaw health. The implant becomes solidly fixed into your jaw bone (osseointegration). A crown is then placed onto this artificial tooth root that looks, feels, and functions like your natural tooth.
Dental implants can also be used to replace multiple missing teeth. Two or three implants can be placed adjacent to each other to retain multiple crowns. An implant supported bridge is a structure similar to a traditional dental bridge with the exception that it is supported by implants rather than natural teeth.
Put simply, dental implants are the most natural replacement for missing teeth. Dental implants at our office are placed by our Periodontist, Dr. Indech.
