If you’re missing one or more teeth, you have many options for filling in your smile gap. But a dental implant replaces the root of a missing tooth for a prosthetic that’s incredibly life-like.
In time, your jaw bone actually fuses to the dental implant, and it’s topped with a dental crown or other custom restoration. At Appalachian Dental Care, we find that patients love dental implants because they’re long-lasting and incredibly comfortable.
“When we place them in somebody, and as long as they keep them clean, it’s the closest thing that we have to a natural tooth is replacing somebody’s tooth with an implant,” said Dr. Airey.
