If you are missing a tooth, dental implants are an ideal way to restore your smile to full lustre. Dental implants closely mimic natural teeth, offering an alternative to removable partial dentures or dental bridges.
A dental implant is carefully inserted into the jawbone to anchor a crown and abutment in place much like a natural tooth’s root. The crown is custom designed for your mouth, so that it matches your existing teeth and can provide support and stability. This not only replaces a missing tooth, but keeps your entire smile intact and in place by preventing the teeth from shifting and bone erosion.
Implants require less maintenance and are less likely to damage your surrounding teeth than dentures. Unlike bridges, they do not require the removal of intact bone structure to be placed. A dental implant will not only improve your smile, but your bite and chewing as well.
