Implants are the leading and most successful replacement option for missing teeth.  After a tooth has been lost or removed, the doctor can place an implant to fill the gap and maintain good oral health.  Dentures and partial dentures can also be secured with implants.

A dental implant is the closest to a natural tooth that a patient can have.  Dental implants are surgically placed in the jaw bone to replace missing tooth roots. Once healed, dental implants act as a base to anchor the visible portion of the artificial tooth – ranging from individual crowns, multi-tooth bridges, or full-arch dental prostheses.  An implant will look and feel like a real tooth and maintain important bone structure.
