Why Dental Implants and not bridges?
A dental implant can be a “stand alone” solution to restore a missing tooth or teeth. They are surgically placed into a patient’s bone with minimal bleeding and little to no pain after placement. The healing of the dental implant is approximately six months on average. After healing the implant is restored with a crown to look and function as a natural tooth. This means adjacent teeth are left untouched and home maintenance is like any natural tooth with flossing and brushing. Implants cannot get cavities!!!
