Dental implants are modern dentistry's best way to replace missing natural teeth after accidents, disease, or extractions. After placing an artificial tooth root in your jaw, the dentist will add a crown to restore the function of your teeth. Dental implants are beautiful and natural looking, which makes them a solution for improving appearance or even restoring your full mouth.
Unlike dentures and partial plates that attempt to restore function, implants do the job effectively while looking as good as natural teeth or even better. Because it is rooted in your jaw, right where a natural tooth previously was, an implant helps keep other teeth from shifting out of place.
