Do you have a missing tooth that causes you embarrassment? Even if all of your other teeth are nicely shaped and pearly white, guess what other people notice? The gap. You may have experienced that yourself when looking at others who are missing a tooth. No matter how hard you try, the gap is impossible to ignore.
A beautiful smile is an important component of your overall appearance. A missing tooth draws the eye away from other pleasing features.
Fortunately, there is a solution to this problem. It may sound too good to be true, but a dental implant can replace a missing tooth. Permanently affixed to your jaw, implants provide the look and function of a natural tooth.
The procedure is fairly straight-forward. A titanium post is surgically implanted into your jaw. This is the actual implant. At first, a temporary artificial tooth goes on top of the implant. There is a recovery period before the permanent one is attached, usually four to six months. Once it is in, it’s like having your natural tooth back.
