There are many reasons for replacing a tooth or teeth – periodontal disease, cavities, bone loss, missing teeth, failed dental work, and injury or trauma – to name a few. If you are suffering from any of these serious dental conditions, you may be a candidate for a dental implant. What exactly is a dental implant? It’s basically the artificial replacement of the root of a natural tooth with a naturally looking replacement tooth on top.
Millions of Americans continue to suffer from missing teeth even though modern dentistry has come a very long way. Years ago, the only tooth replacement options were fixed bridges and removable dentures. Dental implants provide a better, more naturally looking alternative, because they begin with a titanium post which provides a strong foundation for the replacement tooth.
