If you have a missing tooth, a dental implant may be the perfect solution. First, the experts at Today’s Smile will implant a small titanium shaft directly into the bone where the tooth is missing and allow it to set. The bone will then grow around the implant to form a tight connection. Then a replacement tooth will be attached. The implant will help slow or stop the bone loss that occurs when the natural root is missing.
Implants can be a better alternative to an implant bridge because there is no adjustment period for the patient. After it’s completed only teeth will be felt, there won’t be any metal supports in the mouth; there is no discomfort or difficulty eating; plus implants are permanent.
