Fix Gaps In Teeth With Tooth Implants
The primary way to replace single missing teeth is with an implant. The implant replaces the root of the tooth integrating with the bone creating stability. Not every patient is a candidate for a dental implant. The location of the missing tooth along with the overall health of the patient and bone structure will need to be evaluated before the start of treatment.
