If you are missing a tooth, or teeth, then the surrounding teeth can shift position filling the gap and could cause your jawbone to breakdown. This can lead to serious health problems. However, a dental implant is a safe, strong and natural looking solution to the problem and will prevent further complications resulting from a missing tooth.
A dental implant consists of two parts, a small titanium fixture that is attached into the jawbone to act like the “root” of your new tooth, and an artificial tooth or crown. After the titanium fixture has been implanted, and sufficient healing time has passed, the crown is attached, restoring your smile and providing all the function and appearance of a natural tooth.
