Dental implants are an ideal way of replacing missing teeth. Today's technological advances allow implants to offer you important advantages compared to other treatment options. They are significantly superior to bridges and dentures in quality, comfort and longevity.
The implant itself is a small titanium post which acts like the root of a normal tooth. Your experienced dentist at Carmi Dental performs dental implant restoration by attaching artificial teeth to implants anchored in the bone below the gum line. After the anchor has been surgically placed in the jawbone, excess bone and gum grow around the implant, holding it firmly in place. An artificial tooth can then be attached to the implant. The end result is a strong, secure tooth that is virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
