Implant tooth replacement is usually the most desirable type of tooth replacement. By placing titanium roots into the bone where teeth have been lost, function is returned to the bone, and shrinkage of the ridge is for the most part, halted. Following the placement of the roots (implants), an abutment is screwed into it and a crown or a bridge may be cemented or screwed into the abutment. Implant crowns can be flossed like natural teeth, and best of all, they cannot decay! Implant restorations typically have the longest prognosis if the implant is placed properly, and the restoration follows proper biomechanical principles. If you are missing teeth, please ask us if you are a good candidate for implants!
