Dental implants are an effective way to replace missing teeth.
When teeth are lost because of disease or an accident, dental implants may be a good option. You may want to choose dental implants if you:
- hide your smile because you have missing teeth
- wear dentures that are uncomfortable
- are dissatisfied with your removable partial dentures
- want to keep your other teeth intact
Many people choose implants to replace a single tooth or several teeth or to support a full set of dentures. Implants are posts surgically placed into the upper or lower jawbone. They replace the root of one or more missing teeth.
