Implant dentistry replaces the damaged roots of missing teeth. Using artificial teeth set below the gum line, dental implants work as anchors to help secure a single tooth replacement or a set of replacement teeth. Because the anchor is placed below the gum line, it does not require the exposed artificial teeth to rely on surrounding natural teeth for support. This prevents the receding gums and additional tooth loss commonly associated with traditional artificial teeth.
Implant dentistry provides patients with replacement teeth that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. The new teeth are strong, durable, and are nearly indistinguishable from other teeth.
