In most cases, dental implants are the best option to replace missing teeth. Structurally speaking implants closely resemble your natural teeth. Implants work best with the opposing teeth are in good condition.
Implants are tiny titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jaw bone. The bone adheres to the titanium which solidifies together to create a strong anchor for the crown to attach to. When the teeth are extracted the bone that is around the tooth that remains in the empty space starts to break down over time. This can eventually lead to other teeth becoming loose or unstable. Replacing the extracted tooth with an implant helps to retain bone structure and stability in the jaw. Our office has an Oral Surgeon, Dr. Pashapour, on staff. This allows us to provide our patients with in house treatment for the entire implant process. Learn more about our Oral Surgery team on the specialist page.
