When your left with a gap in your smile don't worry its fixable! Implants offer a modern permanent solution for missing teeth. Implant insertion is completely harmless to your surrounding teeth, unlike pontic bridges that require shaving down surrounding teeth and fitting them with crowns. They are composed of titanium screws that are mounted along your jawbone. The screw acts as a root, and attaches to the surrounding bone during the process of osseointegration. A porcelain tooth is then attached to the screw. They are able to replace one missing tooth or can be used as a bridge to replace a row of missing teeth. In some cases, complete denture sets can be attached to multiple implants creating a permanent denture.
Implants are a great option for many people who want permanent solutions to missing teeth. They look and feel like your real teeth, and are not affected by disease and decay. However, not every smile qualifies for an implant, and they are the most expensive option for a replacement tooth. Schedule an appointment today to find out if an implant is the best solution for you.
