Dental implants are a great way to replace the root of a missing tooth. This procedure involves a surgically anchored artificial root. The advantage is that it does not rely on support from your other teeth to replace a missing tooth. These can be used to replace a single tooth, or multiple missing teeth. The actual implants are placed at another office, an oral surgeon or periodontist, and then are restored at our office. This has become a very popular procedure to replace missing teeth.
