Did you know that more than half of all Americans have lost an adult tooth? Luckily, a dental implant is a safe and permanent way to replace a missing tooth.
What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is an artificial root that is surgically inserted to hold a replacement tooth. The surgical procedure is performed at a periodontist or oral surgeons office. Once the root is in place, the dentist performs the remaining restorative work.
Is a Dental Implant Right for me?
We usually recommend dental implants for people who have good oral health. If you have lost a tooth due to injury or periodontal disease, you may be a candidate. In cases where only a single tooth has been lost, the dental implant procedure can replace the tooth with out impacting the surrounding area. Implants can also be used to support a bridge or a set of dentures, or possibly eliminate the need for partial dentures.
What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Implants can last for more than 15 years and they look and feel like natural teeth. They will not be subject to cavities, root canals or other dental problems that plague living teeth. You can brush and floss exactly as you normally would.
