When you only have one missing tooth and you want to replace it for comfort, appearance, and function, a single dental implant is ideal.
Dental implants are a permanent way to complete your smile. After being placed, they function and look the same as your natural teeth, restoring your ability to chew and speak. Implants also fill out your facial structure that may have been hollowed due to missing teeth, and since you don’t have to remove them like dentures, that benefit is permanent. Another major benefit is that the implant roots encourage the growth and strengthening of the jaw bone, helping prevent future bone loss.
