A dental implant is like a tooth root made out of titanium post and is surgically positioned either into the jaw bone or onto the bone, so a replacement tooth or bridge can be fixed to the implant. Dental implants also benefit general oral hygiene because they do not have to be anchored to other teeth, like bridges. Dental implants are an excellent treatment option to missing teeth. To ensure dental implant treatment is successful, dentists at Carvolth Dentistry check your Oral Hygiene and take necessary X-rays including 3-D X-rays (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) and check the status of gum tissues and bone density. Dental implants can be used to treat a single missing tooth, several missing teeth or replace all the missing teeth with an implant supported full-bridge.
