When it comes to missing teeth, the most modern and reliable option is dental implants. Dental implants replace every part of a missing tooth, helping to improve jaw bone strength and stability as well as providing a strong and stable base for the replacement tooth. Dr. Toone can provide dental implant restorations.
The jaw supports your teeth. When a tooth root is gone, the jaw bone in that area no longer has a purpose, and it will begin to deteriorate. This is why people who have lost teeth sometimes get that sunken look. Because a dental implant replaces the tooth root, it keeps this from happening. This is one benefit of choosing a dental implant over other forms of tooth replacement.
Other advantages of dental implants include:
First, a dental implant or multiple dental implants will be surgically placed in the jaw bone. The bone will then fuse with the implants over the course of a few months. Once this process is complete, we can place the dental implant restoration on top and your smile will be as good as new!
