Implants are used to replace single or multiple teeth. It is the best option when adjacent teeth are unrestored and preparing a bridge will compromise them. A surgical grade titanium screw is placed in the jawbone to replace the roots of the missing tooth, and a porcelain crown is placed once the area has healed. Contrary to popular belief, the limiting factor for implant placement is not age. Rather, it is your health status and the quality and quantity of bone in the area. If you are healthy but the bone is not ideal, additional procedures can be completed to provide ideal surgical sites. Implants feel and look like natural teeth, and they are generally more comfortable than removable dentures.
