Of all the ways modern dentistry has to replace missing teeth, dental implants are one of the best. There is no tooth-replacement option that will give you a longer-lasting result. Implants also help preserve tooth-supporting bone that naturally deteriorates when a tooth is lost.
A dental implant most often takes the form of a small, screw-shaped titanium post that replaces the root-part of a missing tooth. The surgical procedure used to place an implant can be a fairly simple procedure. After a healing period, the implant is topped with a lifelike crown custom-made to match your existing natural teeth. Implants have a documented success rate of about 90%. The after procedure satisfaction is significantly higher than any other tooth-replacement option.
