Missing teeth do more than just create a negative impression, they lead to more serious complications if left untreated. Every missing tooth you have increases your risk for decay, infection and more teeth being lost in the future.
Most people prefer a permanent, non-removable solution to replace a missing tooth/teeth. Thus a dental implant, as opposed to a removable plastic denture. The implants (mini biocompatible screws) are inserted into your jawbone, underneath your gums and left to integrate with the bone to provide stability for the final implant crown that is to be created and placed on top of the implant. Once healed, a ceramic crown is fabricated which looks and feels right at home alongside your natural teeth. Dental implants are painless, safe, secure and effective with minimal recovery time needed (2-3 months depending on oral health). We prefer using the Nobel Biocare system when doing Implant placements, but can restore any type of Implant for your convenience.
