Dental implants have revolutionized dentistry over the last few decades.  They are ideal for replacing one or more missing teeth.  An implant is a small titanium post that is placed in the jaw in the place of the missing tooth.  After the area heals and the surrounding bone integrates with the implant, a dental crown is attached to the implant and your missing tooth is no more!  You can treat the implant just like any other tooth.  The procedure takes some time since we must allow for healing, but this procedure has become the ideal tooth replacement option when possible.  The next best alternative is a dental bridge which you can learn more about here.

Implants are also often used to secure dentures into place.  This usually requires two or more implants.  After they are placed, your denture can be modified to snap onto the implants which provides dramatic improvements.

The surgical procedure for placing an implant sounds intimidating, but its actually an incredibly simple process in most cases.  Healing time is very minimal as well.  Most patients experience little to no discomfort after the implant has been placed.
