Permanent Tooth Replacement
Implants are used to replace missing teeth; they can also be used to support dentures and bridges. An implant is anchored into bone, and is considered the ideal tooth replacement option because it is the closest thing to a natural tooth.
The implant is placed in the bone and given time to heal while the bone fuses to the implant. After the implant is fused to the bone, the restorative process of a crown, bridge, denture, etc. may be started.
