The closest thing to a real tooth

Dental implants

Dental implants are considered the standard of care for prosthetic replacement of missing teeth in dentistry. A dental implant is a surgical fixture that is placed into the jawbone and allowed to fuse with the bone over the span of a few months. The implant in fact replaces the root of a missing tooth. In turn, this artificial tooth root serves to hold a replacement tooth or bridge.

Advantages of a Dental Implant

Having a dental implant fused to the jawbone is the closest thing to mimicking a natural tooth because it stands on its own without affecting the nearby teeth and has great stability.

Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or all of the teeth.
