These days, there is absolutely no reason to put up with the hassle caused by a missing tooth. Many different replacement options are available and most are quite good. None of them can compare to the dental implant, however, especially when it comes to aesthetics and longevity.
To create a dental implant, a biocompatible metal post is surgically placed into the bone of your jaw. After the area has healed, Dr. Patel creates a beautiful, lifelike artificial tooth, which is attached to the post.
Not only does a dental implant fill in the space left by the missing tooth, the metal “root” also helps to maintain your dental health beneath your gumline. Missing teeth lead to lost dental bone, but this is prevented with the implant. The post functions like your natural root, cueing the bone to continue maintaining itself.
Many insurance plans, realizing the long-term health benefits of dental implants, are starting to cover the implant procedure. We will work with your insurance to determine your benefits and help you make the most of your coverage.
