If you are missing teeth, it is crucial to replace them. Without all your teeth, chewing and eating can destabilize your bite and cause discomfort. When teeth are missing, your mouth can also shift, causing your face to become misshapen and age prematurely. Implants are a great way to replace your missing teeth or to anchor dentures, and if properly maintained, can last a lifetime!
An implant is a new tooth made of metal and porcelain that looks just like your natural tooth. It’s composed of two main parts: one part is the titanium implant body that takes the place of the missing root, and the second part is the tooth-colored crown that is cemented on top of the implant.
