Implants today can provide solutions to problems that in days gone by were unsalvageable. Many people with missing teeth were faced with no alternative to removable full or partial dentures. In instances of single missing teeth, people have had no choice but to bridge the space [fixed option] or wear a removable denture. Now with implant dentistry being widely practiced in mainstream dentistry we have elegant solutions to overcome these problems.

What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is an artificial replacement for a missing tooth root. The implant fixture [fabricated out of titanium] is placed surgically into the bone and allowed to heal and integrate. Because the implant surface is not recognized by the body as being a foreign object the bone heals around the fixture. This relationship then allows the restoring dentist to place crowns or bridgework or dentures on top of this artificial root.
