Dental implants are artificial teeth that permanently replace missing ones. These are accepted worldwide as the most practical and best cosmetic option for tooth replacement. They’re also the only tooth replacement option that doesn’t negatively impact or involve existing teeth.
A small titanium post is inserted into the bone and after new bone has formed around the implant (about two months), your dentist attaches a new tooth onto the top of it.
Implants can also be used to support a bridge. It’s often unnecessary to place an implant for each missing tooth so two implants can replace three missing teeth. This results in cost savings and quicker healing time. The success rates for these procedures in Dr. Kay’s and Dr. Berger’s office is 98% and they can present you with a variety of treatment options.
