The most desirable option for many of our patients is that of dental implants.
How does a dental implant work?
Implants are used in many ways in medicine. In dentistry, an implant is used as a way of replacing missing teeth. This can be achieved if patients are missing one or more teeth. Dental implants can replace a single tooth or several teeth. This depends on how it is utilized. A single missing tooth is replaced with an implant which acts as a tooth root replacement and is covered with a dental crown. A dental implant may also be used to anchor down a dental bridge or to stabilize a full denture. This versatility is what makes dental implants a highly desirable option for many of our patients.
Who is a candidate for dental implants?
Patients who are missing one or more teeth who have sufficient bone structure and a healthy smile may be considered for dental implants. These restorations do require bone of the jaw in order for the placement to succeed. This can be determined with preliminary x-rays before moving forward with placement.
