Dental implants allow patients to replace teeth that have been lost or removed. The dental implant is essentially a new tooth root that a permanent replacement tooth is fixed to. This allows patients to go back to some sense of normality, and eat foods they enjoy with confidence and without pain.
Dental implants are a common and effective way to replace teeth, no matter the initial reason for the tooth loss.
These may include:
- Due to decay
- Born without them
- Periodontal disease
- Lost due to trauma
