If you are missing a tooth, or multiple teeth, dental implants may be the answer. Dental implants act as an artificial tooth root and support a replacement tooth. These prostheses can help prevent the bone and gum loss that often occurs when a tooth is missing. While dental implants are generally considered to be a cosmetic procedure, they’re actually categorized as prosthetic dentistry. Replacing missing tooth roots provides additional stability and prevents issues with eating and speaking clearly.
