When you lose a tooth, there are a lot of ways to replace it, but a dental implant is usually the best option for the following reasons:
- It is the most natural looking replacement.
- It doesn’t involve cutting into any of your existing teeth.
- It will help preserve your bone levels around the area.
The implant is made out of titanium, which is bio-compatible with the bone. The bone grows right around the tiny implant threads and locks it in place. This is the key to keeping the artificial tooth firmly in your mouth.
Once healing has occurred, a crown is cemented on.
