Teeth can be missing for a variety of reasons whether it is dental trauma, decay, or tooth extraction. Dental implants are a safe and excellent ways to restore a person’s smile because they look and function like a natural tooth. Dental implants are replacement tooth roots that can be used to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or all of the teeth. If you are considering dental implants, schedule a consultation with one of our doctors at Southern Cross Dental to have all of your questions answered.
A dental implant is a titanium post that acts as a tooth root and is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line. If a person is considering implants, they must have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. Once the implant procedure is complete, it’s critical to practice proper oral hygiene habits to keep them healthy. Dental implants should be treated as if they are your natural teeth.
