Although patients have a number of restorative options available for the treatment of missing teeth, none have proven to be as functionally effective and durable as implants. In many cases, dental implants may be the only logical choice for the restoration of all necessary functionality of the teeth.
Dental implant methods have been refined over the past 10 years and now patients can have tooth replacements that look, feel and function as normal teeth. Today, various tools and technology has propelled implant dentistry into a sophisticated art-form. Dental implants can be used in a variety of ways to solve almost any problem related to tooth loss. Situations that previously required dental bridges, partial dentures or complete dentures can now be safely and predictably treated with permanent, non-removable implant supported replacement teeth.
