Are you missing a tooth and looking for a way to replace it? Dental implants are a wonderful way to restore a missing tooth in your mouth. A dental implant restores mouth to optimal function; stabilizing the surrounding bone, tissue and teeth by substituting the root structure of the missing tooth. This helps to prevent further serious complications that can arise if the missing tooth is left untreated. There are a series of appointments to get to the final restoration, the dental implant and crown.
