When a person has a missing tooth or a tooth with little to no crown (the part of the tooth you see) and root, dental implants may be a good option. Dental implants are placed by setting an implant into the jaw to act as the root of the tooth. Once the new root is in place and we know the the jaw has accepted the implant, the artificial tooth can be placed.
Implants are the closest you can get to natural teeth. They allow you to confidently eat, smile, laugh, talk and enjoy all of your regular activities of everyday life.
