Dental implants are one of the most desired treatments to replace missing teeth. They are natural-looking and can be created to cosmetically match existing teeth or used to achieve a whole-smile restoration or makeover.
Using Dental Implants in Restorative Dentistry
Dental implant technology has given dentists extreme flexibility in restoring a mile or filling the space from a single lost tooth. In prior years, dentists were only able to use a dental bridge to fill the void of a missing tooth or several missing teeth.
Dental implants have the appearance and feel of a natural tooth, resulting in an improved smile and appearance that patients can be proud of.
