Missing teeth adversely effect your well-being. It can lead to the loss of chewing ability and eating pleasure, loss of other teeth, tipping, and crowding. Replacing missing teeth, therefore, is important to your general health and the health of your remaining teeth.

This is by far superior to other alternatives for teeth replacement.

Dental implants may be a right choice for patients of all ages. areful assessment is needed if you are the right candidate for dental implants.
Treatment times can vary from case to case. Every situation is unique. It may be immediate replacement or up to 6 months of healing is required.
