Millions of Americans have replaced a missing tooth with a dental implant, and that number is growing steadily. At Kevin Bass DMD Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we are providers of these dental marvels to our patients in Montgomeryville and surrounding areas.
A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically implanted into the patient’s jaw. Because they replace the missing tooth’s root, they help the jawbone maintain its density and prevent bone recession. An artificial tooth is fitted on top of the titanium post.
One of the things that make dental implants so popular is that they look and function like natural teeth. If you’re missing one of your teeth, they’re an excellent, long-term option.
For patients missing all of their teeth, implants can be used to anchor dentures, providing a much firmer, more secure fit. Many patients report newfound confidence in themselves, after years of embarrassment caused by missing teeth.
