Dental implants are an increasingly popular solution to replacing missing teeth. Aside from looking natural and aesthetic, they do not require any modifications to adjacent teeth (unlike a bridge) and are not removable (like a denture). Dental Implants are in 2 parts. The implant portion is a titanium screw which is placed into the jawbone where the root of the missing tooth would be. A crown is then attached to this implant. Once placed, an implant is just like having your natural tooth back.
At Riverside Family Dental we are able to provide all aspects of implant treatment. If you are interested in finding out whether an implant is a suitable solution for you, the best place to start is a consultation with one of our dentists. From here an assessment can be made about whether an implant will work in your particular case.
