If you have missing teeth because of gum disease, extensive decay, or trauma, affordable dental implants could help you enjoy smiling again. Implants look and feel just like natural teeth. They can allow you to enjoy foods you’ve been avoiding. An implant can replace a single tooth, or one or more can be used as a support for dentures. Your dentist can perform tests to determine if you are good candidate for dental implants. You’ll need to have enough healthy jawbone and gum tissue to support them.

When it is firmly attached, your dentist will cement the crown in place.
