A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. The photos and video below show the different ways an implant can help patients with missing one or more teeth. Please call the office for free consultation and evaluation for this procedure.
What do dental implants look like?
The dental implant is the strongest and most stable method of tooth replacement. Compare the images below, from a single missing tooth, to a partial denture, to a dental implant.
Sometimes a single dental implant will suffice. In other instances, more than one dental implant is necessary to accomplish a natural looking tooth replacement.
