Restore your missing teeth
Dental implants are a great way to replace your missing teeth. They are fixed like bridges (see crowns and bridges) so when you chew, they don’t rock around. Implants can greatly mimic a natural tooth in both function and aesthetics. Replacing a single tooth with an implant also allows you to floss in between teeth unlike that of a bridge.
Dental Implants are also able to be used in a combination of multiple procedures allowing replacement of multiple teeth or being able to fix your denture (see hybrids).
How do they work? Well the dental implant is a titanium root that is placed in the jaw bone and either crowns, bridges or dentures are placed on top of the implant.
