There are a variety of restorative dentistry treatments for missing teeth. Dental bridges provide a permanent solution while removable dentures offer a cost-effective alternative. Dental implants may be the most advantageous method of restoring missing teeth. They have the aesthetic appeal that people desire and they last longer than bridgework and dentures. Dental implants can replace a single tooth, be used to stabilize a full denture or be used for abutment teeth for bridge work.
The process for placing a dental implant requires a minor surgery. A titanium screw-like post is set in the jawbone where the root of the tooth was previously located. In cases where the tooth has been missing for a longer period of time, the bone may have receded. In these situations, a bone graft is required in order to place an implant. If a bone graft is needed, the actual implant will not be placed until the graft is ready.
