There are many reasons for replacing a tooth – cavities, periodontal disease, bone loss, missing teeth, failed dental work, and injury or trauma are but a few. A dental implant is one of the ways missing teeth can be replaced…and implants are becoming more and more popular. If your smile is less-than-perfect, you may be a candidate for a dental implant – the artificial replacement of the root of a natural tooth.
Dentistry has come a long way, it’s true. But millions of Americans continue to suffer from missing teeth. For centuries, the only treatment options available were fixed bridges and removable dentures. But today, dental implants provide a better, more natural looking alternative.
