Dental implants can be used to replace missing teeth. A metal root is attached directly to the jawbone by an oral surgeon or a periodontist. After several months of healing, Dr. Wong can restore the implant with an implant abutment and an implant crown.
The advantages of a dental implant include:
- Eliminates the need for a removable denture
- Resolves joint pain or bite problems that are caused by teeth shifting into the missing tooth space
- You can chew all of your favorite foods normally
- Improves the aesthetics and provides a confident smile
- Can last a lifetime
