Dental implants are considered the “gold standard” for the treatment of missing teeth, providing a tooth replacement that is as close to your natural tooth as possible. Dental implants are permanent, natural looking and can stabilize your overall oral health by replacing both tooth and tooth root: the implanted post functions like a tooth root and minimizes bone loss in the jaw. Drs. Furgurson, White and Hoyle recommend the use of dental implants whenever appropriate for patients needing to replace a missing tooth or to secure a bridge or denture.
Your dentist will work with you individually to evaluate your dental health, discuss your concerns and goals and make appropriate treatment recommendations for tooth replacement.
