Dental implants are an excellent treatment for restoring missing teeth in a way that feels solid and natural. Implants have been used for many years and have a very high rate of long-term success.
If a tooth is a removed, a titanium implant can be placed in the spot where the tooth used to be.
Once placed, the bone grows around the implant over a period of 3-4months and locks it in, much like cement.
Now that there is a solid platform, a porcelain crown can be placed on the implant, effectively replacing the tooth or teeth that have been lost.
The result is a tooth that looks and feels very natural, and most-times you will forget that the tooth is not your natural tooth.
