Do you have missing teeth? You're not alone. In fact, according to the American College of Prosthodontists, 26% of adults ages 35 to 44 have at least one missing tooth. And by age 74, that number jumps to 69%. Missing teeth can be an embarrassing issue, but with dental implants, you no longer have to worry about your smile.
Dental implants are a lasting, stable tooth replacement that can replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or complete arches of teeth. The dental implant is made of titanium and is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. It replaces the missing tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. A healing period is often required to allow the bone to bond with the dental implant. Following this healing period, our dentist will place the dental implant restoration or replacement tooth on top of the dental implant.
Dental implants have many benefits not only to your oral health but also to function and appearance of your smile including:
-Preserved dental health
-Improved appearance and confidence
