Lost a Tooth? A Trusted Dentist can Restore It through Dental Implants

Anyone that has recently lost a tooth or had a tooth extracted should immediately begin exploring their options for restoring their smile.

Here is a quick glimpse at some of the benefits of dental implants offered by reputable dentists and what to expect during your own procedure.

Implants are restorative devices that are anchored into the bone socket that has been left by a missing or extracted tooth. Typically, dental implants are planted into the gums through oral surgery. They are made of three components including an abutment, crown (or false tooth), and titanium rod. The titanium rod is the part that actually attaches to the bone in a process known as osseointegration.
