Dentistry has made incredible advancements in recent years. One of the biggest achievements is the ability to replace a missing tooth with technology called a dental implant.
An implant is a small component that is painlessly “implanted” into your mouth. This is usually done by a dental specialist. The implant takes a period of about 3 months to heal under your gums before we put the “tooth” on top, which consists of an abutment and a crown. Dental implants cost much less than the price of fixing damage that can occur to your remaining teeth when a missing tooth is not replaced.
