What Is a Dental Implant?
Why Are Dental Implants Better For Replacing Missing Teeth?
Perhaps the most important part of an implant-supported tooth restoration is the part you don't see: the dental implant itself. This post doesn't just support the tooth. It also acts as a messenger that signals the jaw to regrow bone lost to daily wear and tear. Without these messages, the bone in the tooth socket and jaw deteriorates.
No other tooth restoration method restores both the tooth and the root. This flaw opens the door to bone atrophy and future dental problems as the jawbone erodes.
