A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is positioned into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or dental implant bridge in place inside your mouth. Dental implants are a great option if you have lost a single tooth, more than one tooth or even several teeth.
If you are considering getting dental implants, you will need to be good overall health, as well as have good oral health.. If you have any periodontal issues or gum problems, those need to be resolved prior to implant treatment to ensure that you are free of periodontal disease. Additionally, you need to have enough bone in your jaw to support the implant.
