Dental implants are the most effective treatment for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants not only restore your smile but also serve as a replacement root to help keep your jawbone healthy and your other teeth in place.
The dental implant itself refers to the titanium screw that serves as your replacement tooth root. The implant is surgically placed directly into your jawbone. Then a connector is attached to the implant for placement of your crown.
Dental implants are the preferred option for missing teeth due to the benefits it offers your oral health. In addition to improving the look of your smile, dental implants also help keep your other teeth in place and stimulate your jawbone to prevent deterioration.
Further, unlike dentures or bridges, dental implants are permanent, so you never have to worry about them falling out when you eat or talk.
