If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants offer a strong, stable, sturdy tooth replacement option. Anchored to the bone beneath your teeth, dental implants are not susceptible to moving around or feeling loose in your mouth. In fact, over time they fuse with the bone in which they are placed, providing a long-lasting solution and stimulating the density of bone.
If you need to replace missing teeth, it’s important to choose the right option for your unique needs. There are many factors that go into this decision, and Dr. Greenhalgh will provide you with as much information as necessary to ensure you fully understand all your options.

If you’re missing one or more teeth, particularly if they’re in a hard-to-see area, it may not seem immediately compelling to replace them. However, there are a number of reasons, some cosmetic, others practical, to replace those pearly whites.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root. It is placed into the jawbone where there used to be a live tooth root, and it holds an acrylic or porcelain tooth to replace a lost tooth. This implant procedure is a superior alternative to dentures and bridges.
Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth because they look, feel, and act just like your natural teeth. You don’t have to change your dental hygiene routine. You can brush, floss, and rinse just the same.
