Dental implants are an extraordinary blend of science and art. Made of titanium, implants are securely anchored into the jaw and serve as roots for dental crowns. In many cases, implants are considered the best option for replacing missing teeth. They are also used to replace bridges or partial dentures, or to provide support for dentures. Implants offer several advantages over other tooth replacement options. They look, feel, and function just like real teeth! In addition, surrounding teeth are left untouched and their exceptional reliability and high success rates mean implants typically last 15-20 years.
Single Tooth Implants
If you’re missing a tooth and want the very best dentistry has to offer, you could be the perfect candidate for single-tooth implants. A single tooth implant acts as a tooth root for a replacement tooth. The implant is securely anchored into the jaw and topped with a crown for the very best in look, feel, and function. Single tooth dental implants offer several advantages over other tooth replacement options such as bridges and partials. Implants better preserve surrounding teeth and the jawbone. They are easier to clean and can outlast bridges and dentures by about 10 years!
