Ease, Comfort, Appearance: The Dental Implant Advantage

At EK Dental Surgery we don’t like saying the words, “That tooth has got to come out,” but sometimes we have to. And in some cases, patients come to us already missing a tooth. In cases like this dental implants should be considered as an option to replace a failing or missing tooth.

Dental implants are surgically implanted artificial teeth placed in the bone where the natural tooth originally was. An implant typically consists of a titanium alloy screw in place of a tooth root, with a dental crown placed on top to complete the procedure.

Together the screw and crown form a complete, permanent replacement tooth with almost the exact characteristics of a natural tooth.
