Do you have one or more missing teeth? Has it made you feel embarrassed to socialize or cause pain or difficulty when eating? No matter how many teeth you are missing or how much of your jaw bone has resorbed, if you are tired of having an incomplete smile or wearing dentures, you can benefit from dental implants! Due to their natural function and permanency, dental implants have the power to change the quality your life—in more ways than one. Dental implants replace critical tooth function through their three-part structure: the post, which mimics natural tooth roots, the dental crown or prosthesis, and the abutment that connects them together. A tooth that has been placed and restored with a dental implant will look, feel, and function virtually the same as any natural and healthy tooth!
