The Cost-Effective Way to Replace Missing Teeth
Why Would Dr. Moussa Recommend A Dental Implant
Dental implants are designed to provide a strong foundation for replacement teeth. These new teeth look, feel, and perform just like a regular tooth. Dental implants are changing the way our patients live. A person who has lost a tooth is able to regain the ability to eat with that tooth again. A dental implant appears completely natural and when placed keeps your facial contours intact. Implants also prevent bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing. Replacing missing teeth with an implant is one of the healthiest ways to replace a missing tooth.
What Are Dental Implants Made Of?
A dental implant is made from titanium. A small titanium post is surgically placed into the patient’s jawbone where the original tooth is missing. This post acts as an anchor. Once the post is placed, the abutment is screwed into the implant, and finally the crown is attached to the implant.
