Your teeth were designed to last a lifetime, but sometimes they don’t! Replacing missing teeth is important to your general health and to the health of your other teeth. Not only do you lose chewing ability when a tooth is lost, but unreplaced teeth can cause other teeth to be lost, tipped or crowded and create subsequent problems.
Dental implants are substitutes for the roots of missing teeth. They act as an anchor for a replacement tooth or a crown which looks and feels like the natural tooth.
Treatment time can vary greatly depending on your needs, but the final result justifies the time and money invested to improve function and aesthetics.
