When you meet a person who is missing a front tooth, what does that say to you? Do you wonder if they were in an accident? It may not be fair, but we are often judged (and misjudged) by our appearance. If you are missing a tooth, a dental implant from Future of Dentistry can restore your smile.
A dental implant is a titanium post that is permanently placed in the jaw, where it fuses with the bone. Implants can hold a single replacement tooth or a bridge, or serve to anchor dentures.
Before you can get a dental implant, we must be sure you are a good candidate for one. The ideal candidate is someone in good general and oral health, with enough jaw bone to support the implant. The best candidates also have healthy gum tissue.
Titanium is ideally suited to be used as dental implants. It is strong and lightweight, and fuses with bone better than any other metal. This property is also what makes titanium so useful in hip and other joint replacements. Titanium implants have a success rate that is greater than ninety percent.
Dental implants from Future of Dentistry cannot be beat as a tooth replacement option. They look and function like natural teeth, and are among the restorative dentistry options we offer. Call for an appointment today!
