have quickly become the safest
and easiest way to replace missing teeth
. Whether you've lost one tooth due to an injury or you need to replace a bridge
, crown or dentures
are a safe option for patients of all ages. If you maintain good oral health, have healthy gums and enough bone to support the implant, you may be a great candidate.
The implants start with a metal root surgically placed into your jaw that holds a natural prosthetic tooth replacement that does not rely on or deteriorate neighboring teeth. Despite the way it sounds, they are quite comfortable to wear, last longer than 30 years, and they slow the shrinking of bone and gum tissue from the area surrounding the missing tooth. And they're low maintenance! Just brush them like your own teeth.
