Dental implants as permanent solutions for missing teeth
A dental implant is the standard for care during prosthetic replacement of a missing tooth. This surgical fixture is put into the jawbone and allowed to fuse with the bone over a few months. The implant behaves as the root for a missing tooth. Previously, the only other options for those who lost teeth were dentures and briedges.
