Replacing Missing Teeth with Dental Implants
We often recommend dental implants as a tooth restoration procedure for patients with one or more missing teeth. While a bridge or partials offer numerous benefits, dental implants are a proven method for restoring missing teeth and have a high success rate with proper placement.
The base of the implant stimulates the jawbone so the bone does not resorb. We can recreate the appearance of the teeth with a natural-looking crown.
