The best!: Compared to alternatives such as fixed bridgework, removable dentures or leaving a missing space open, a dental implant is an incredible, long lasting restoration. Most patients find the procedure very "easy, " especially compared to a tooth extraction. And...When the implant is restored with its crown, it feels almost exactly like your natural tooth. It's the future of dentistry!
