Like a bridge, a dental implant is a solution for replacing a missing tooth. A fairly recent innovation, dental implants are often the ideal choice when you have lost one or more teeth due to decay or injury.
While bridges are cemented in place, an implant is attached via a post (similar to your tooth’s root) that is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line. A dental implant will look and feel just like a regular tooth, which can increase both your confidence and your overall dental hygiene.
Because the implant penetrates the jaw bone and gum, not everyone will be a good fit for an implant. We will discuss all the considerations with you and help you choose the treatment that is best for you.
