Dental implants restore teeth for people missing teeth due to tooth decay, periodontal disease, or injury. The process begins with a metal post surgically implanted into the jaw bone which will require due time to heal. Once the metal post is in place, the process is completed with a replacement crown or bridge. Implants tend to be more expensive than bridges because implants are stronger, longer-lasting, and don’t rely on surrounding teeth for support.
