I’m missing some teeth. What is the best way to replace them?
The best long-term option to replace a missing tooth or teeth is a dental implant. Unlike removable partials or a bridge with a false tooth, an implant looks and functions like your missing tooth. You brush and floss it like your other teeth and it feels stable when you chew with it. With a success rate of 95%+, and an implant is the longest lasting restoration we do, lasting 35 or more years.
What is a dental implant made of?
A dental implant consists of a titanium post and a porcelain crown. The post is surgically placed directly into the bone, which when healed, creates a strong foundation for the crown. A big bonus with dental implants is that they feel and look like a completely natural tooth.
