Implants offer an excellent solution to one or more missing teeth. Implants look very natural, feel secure and, most important, prevent bone loss in the affected area.
While the general focus of modern dentistry is to preserve a damaged tooth whenever possible, tooth loss can still result from decay, periodontal disease or injury. Possibilities for filling the gaps left by lost teeth were once limited to bridges or dentures; but they now include dental implants.
Dental implants are posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone and function much like the roots of natural teeth. They can serve as anchors for crowns, bridges, or full and/or partial dentures depending on individual need. Because these “root replacements” actually fuse with the jawbone, the resulting “root” is very solid and stable. Root replacement with dental implants is one of the only ways to prevent bone loss after a tooth root is extracted.
