Missing teeth? Implant dentistry may be to solution for you! Implant dentistry, having been around for over 30 years, is a predictable and highly successful way to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are titanium “roots” that are placed into the jawbone. Once the implants have healed in place, artificial teeth known as crowns can be placed on top of the implants.
Dental implants are very versatile: they can be used to replace a single tooth as well as multiple missing teeth. Unlike partial dentures, implants are fixed in place, so you do not have to remove them. Also, unlike fixed bridgework, implants do not require the adjacent teeth to be prepared.
In addition to being used to replace missing teeth, dental implants can also be used to anchor loose partial dentures and full dentures.
