A missing tooth is more than just an aesthetic concern. All too often, an individual missing a tooth in the back of his or her mouth will have an "out-of-site, out-of -mind" mentality. This can be a huge oversight!That tooth's purpose included:
To avoid the maladies associated with a missing tooth, an implant may be required. An implant will take the place, or more appropriately fill the space, that your missing tooth once held.
A dental implant is a prosthetic post that is placed into the bone of the upper or lower jaw (in place of the missing tooth) to function as the 'root'. Once the post has settled, an artificial tooth is attached to fill the space that was once your missing tooth.
A dental implant can give back your confidence, as well as the ability to eat comfortably with a clean, healthy oral environment.
