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!

Best treatment: Implants are the best treatment for missing teeth as the restore the missing tooth without the need to grind down adjacent teeth for bridges or have something removable

Dental implants: Like anything else in dentistry, there are pros and cons and the truth is the pros outweigh the cons., Dental implants are by far the best option in the majority of situations when replacing missing teeth.

The best: Dental implants are considered the best treatment for missing teeth in most situations. See a specialist - Prosthodontist- for evaluation and options. They are the experts in reconstruction. Good Luck.
