Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants have revolutionized the field of dentistry. Implants are titanium screws that are surgically placed in the jaw bone to replace a missing tooth. The implant is placed just below the level of the gums, an abutment is screwed into the implant, and a crown is then made to replace the missing tooth. There are many advantages to this treatment. First, it is more conservative than doing a bridge. The teeth on either side of the missing tooth is spared from having to be prepared for a crown. Secondly, oral hygiene is easier to perform than around a bridge. With an implant, you can floss around it just like a natural tooth. Normal flossing technique is more difficult around a bridge which can make the teeth more prone to decay.
