Dental Implants

Dental implants are one of the most predictable and long lasting ways to replace a missing tooth.  When a tooth is lost or missing, a dental implant is a titanium post that integrates into the jaw bone to replace the missing root off the tooth.

The other alternatives are a fixed or removable bridge.  The removable option is bulky and sometimes unstable thus is only used as a last resort.  A bridge is the next best option and has the advantage of its speed of fabrication as compared to an implant’s integration time.  But a bridge involves the teeth on either side which can overstress those teeth and make replacement costs higher over the long run.

The ideal option for tooth replacement is a dental implant whenever possible because it looks and feels just like a tooth, and over a patient’s lifetime, should cost less.
