Dental implants are a prosthetic replacement to both the root and the crown of a missing tooth. Implants are placed and left to heal for
approximately 4 months. After the bone has had time to heal around the implant a dental crown is fabricated and placed to match the size and dimensions of the missing tooth. Dental implants are ideal for those who have lost teeth due to periodontal disease, through a traumatic accident or those who have congenitally missing teeth.
