Implant treatments have become the optimal option for replacing missing teeth. An implant is a titanium screw that is placed into the area of the missing tooth. Once the implant is allowed to heal and fuse to the bone, a replacement tooth or crown is placed. At LiveHealthy Dental, we work alongside a periodontist in the placement of the implant. Call our office today to get a consultation about implants.
Unlike bridges, implants do not require support from the other teeth around the area. In addition, bone loss is typically not seen since implants replace both the tooth and its root. Finally, implants both appear and act like a regular tooth. You will have better results with chewing and speaking, than you would have with dentures. Call LiveHealthy Dental to learn more or to schedule an appointment.
