For the most natural looking solution to replace a missing tooth, consider Gilbert dental implants. When an implant is placed properly it will last a lifetime and it will look, feel, and function like a natural tooth. If you are in good dental and overall physical health with adequate bone density at the replacement site, you may be a candidate.
How it Works
In the first part of the procedure, a metal form is surgically placed into the bone which serves as a root. Once the implant has been set, the tooth replacement can be positioned. Typically there is a brief time of healing between these two components. Since dental implants are placed directly into your jawbone, it is important to note that bone resorption is prevented. Bone loss or jaw shrinking can be a long-term issue for patients with missing teeth. Bone grafting is an option for individuals that may have experienced facial collapse from significant bone loss.
