Dental implants are artificial teeth roots made of titanium that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums to mount replacement teeth on and replace missing teeth. Implants provide excellent support and stability for dental prostheses or replacement teeth. Compared to dentures, bridges and crowns, dental implants are a popular and effective long-term solution for people who suffer from missing teeth, failing teeth or chronic dental problems. They fit, feel and function like natural teeth, as such, dental implants are becoming the new standard in tooth replacement.
If you have lost a tooth due to periodontal disease, failing teeth, injury or other reasons, then a dental implant can help fill the empty space in your mouth and resstore your quality of life. Schedule a dental implant consultation with Dr. Olan today if it’s the right treatment for you.
