If one or more of your teeth are missing, there are a number of ways to replace them. An alternative to bridges and partial or complete dentures are dental implants. Implants replace missing roots and support artificial replacement teeth. They are comfortable, long-lasting, and look like natural teeth. In addition to looking and functioning like a natural tooth, a dental implant replaces a single tooth without sacrificing the health of neighbouring teeth.
When a missing tooth is replaced by a dental implant, it does not alter the healthy adjacent teeth. Once the implant is placed, a post (or abutment) is attached to provide support for your final crown.
A dental implant provides several advantages over other tooth replacement options. A single implant can be more esthetic and easier to keep clean than a bridge. They also act as a support for full and partial dentures. Implants integrate with the bone to act as an anchor for the replacement teeth. The cost of these implants has become very affordable.
