Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth. Individual implants allow easier access between teeth, making oral hygiene a lot easier. Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.
If you're healthy enough to have a tooth extracted, you're probably healthy enough to have a dental implant. Whether your missing teeth are the result of injury, disease, or decay, dental implants could be your perfect answer. General good health and adequate bone in the jaw are key requirements.
