All You Need to Know About Dental Implants

For anyone who has lost a tooth or teeth, dental implants can offer a permanent solution for restoring their smile.

Key takeaways:

– When a tooth is lost, the jawbone naturally disappears; having a dental implant can prevent this from happening.

– People need healthy gum tissue to be eligible for dental implants; any gum disease will need treating before the procedure can be conducted.

– The dental implant procedure involves a small screw that is inserted into the jaw; the implant is then covered by a porcelain crown.
