A dental implant is an artificial root made of titanium metal. It is inserted into the jawbone to replace the root of the natural tooth. The implant acts as an anchor to hold the replacement tooth in place.
If you are missing three or more teeth adjacent to each other, you do not need one implant for every tooth. A few dental implants strategically placed can help restore numerous teeth. For example 3 missing teeth may only need 2 implants.
If you are are missing all of your teeth on either the upper/lower jaw or both, four implants strategically placed can fully restore your jaw.
These are just a few options for restoring teeth with dental implants. Book your free consultation and we will be happy to go over all of your options.
