Losing a tooth can be a very traumatic experience. You will need to have the tooth replaced as soon as possible to avoid future dental problems. Fortunately, there are a number of solutions that you can pursue. Dental implants are often the best option.
Implants are the roots that connect crowns or other replacement teeth to the jawbone. They are strong, secure and easy to clean.
Implants are designed to function like the tooth they have replaced. They rarely cause any discomfort and will match the rest of your teeth.
The procedure requires two visits over the course of a few months. Your dentist will fit a titanium root (implant) into your jaw. Your jaw bone will grow around the new implant. This process generally takes between two to six months. You will need to have a support post and a permanent replacement tooth anchored over the implant once it is securely anchored to your bone.
