If you are missing one or several teeth, implants are a great way to fill the gaps in your smile. These devices are comprised of a titanium “root” that supports an artificial tooth, which is then inserted into the jawbone. Over time, it will seamlessly fuse with the bone, leaving you with a flawless result.
Who is a good candidate for dental implants?
As long as your oral health and overall health are in good standing, dental implants are for you. For best results, there must be enough bone in the jaw for the implant to fuse properly, and the bone must be strong enough to support the titanium root. For patients experiencing bone loss, a graft procedure must be completed before the artificial tooth can be placed.
