dental implant is an artificial tooth root
Transcript: Missing teeth is a very common problem among adults in the United States. Dental implants are not only the longest-lasting type of tooth replacement, they’re also very durable, effective, and life-like.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root. It replaces the missing natural root – which is the portion of the tooth lying beneath your gum. A dental crown, dental bridge, or implant supported denture is then affixed to the abutment of the dental implant to replace the upper, visible portion of the tooth.
The success rate for dental implants is very high and it’s rare for an implant to be rejected. Dental implants can give you back both an attractive smile and a healthy, comfortable bite. So, let experienced implants dentist, Dr. Donald Wilcox, help you regain your self-confidence.
