If you are embarrassed about missing or permanently damaged teeth, you may want to consider dental implants. Unlike traditional tooth replacement treatments, dental implants are permanent, comfortable and act like the rest of your teeth. The base of an implant is a small titanium rod that is inserted into the jawbone, which replaces the root structure of a natural tooth. Once the bone fills in around the rod, the latter acts as a stable foundation for a replacement tooth.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, but they can also be used to support a bridge or denture that replaces multiple teeth. Whether you need one tooth, multiple teeth or all your teeth replaced, Dr Joe Bhat can help you decide which option is ideal for your individual needs.
