Dental implants are the current standard of care for the replacement of missing teeth.
A dental implant is a bio-compatible titanium fixture (tolerated well by your body) that is surgically implanted into your jawbone where you are missing a tooth. The implant will act like the root of your tooth, over which a crown, bridge or denture will be supported. Generally, one implant is placed to restore one missing tooth, or a ratio of 1:1. If all or several teeth are missing, several implants can be used to restore your entire dentition to full function and beautiful esthetics.
