Of all the ways modern dentistry must replace lost teeth, dental implants are so far the best. There is no tooth-replacement option that will give you more durable results. Implants also help preserve the bones of teeth that naturally deteriorate when teeth are lost. Bone loss is one of the main hidden consequences of tooth loss.
Dental implants are small titanium posts shaped screws that replace the root part of the lost tooth. The surgical procedure used to put implants is actually quite small and routine, only requires local anesthesia in many cases. After the healing period, implants are attached with a human crown that is made specifically to match your existing natural teeth. Implants have a documented success rate of more than 95%, which is significantly higher than the option of other tooth replacement.
