If you have lost one or more permanent teeth to an injury or periodontal disease, there are several teeth replacement options that you can consider. In the past, the choices were more limited – basically, you could either go with a denture or bridge. Thanks to vast improvements in dental technology and sciences, dental implants have emerged as one of the most advanced and innovative solutions for treating tooth loss.
Implants are a good option for individuals who have lost a tooth or teeth due to an injury, a disease or decay. The only limitation is the amount of bone available. The procedure is considered to be the most functionally effective and durable choice for the restoration of missing teeth. Dental implants are made of titanium and the crowns are made usually of high grade porcelain fused to precious metals such as gold.
