dental implant in tooth replacement

Why Dental Implants Are the Gold Standard in Tooth Replacement?

A dental implant is a permanent replacement for missing teeth. Considered the gold standard of replacement options, your dentist will insert the implant before affixing a crown.

Key takeaways:

  • By stimulating the jawbone, dental implants help maintain a younger look to your face.
  • Once your dentist fits the crown a dental implant will look just like the rest of your natural teeth.
  • With a success rate of 95% you can have confidence your dental implant will not be rejected.

“Unlike other forms of restorative dentistry when you lose a tooth, such as dental bridges, dental implants actually allow you to regenerate jawbone.”
