A dental implant is an excellent treatment for replacing a single or multiple missing teeth. Often a small titanium post is used to replace the root of a missing tooth and a custom fitted crown is secured to the implant. The implant will preserve the jawbone and keep it healthy while being strong, comfortable, and secure. With the restoration in place the implant looks and feels much like natural teeth. With careful home care and regular checkups/cleanings here in our office and implant can be an excellent long term solution for missing teeth.
