We know losing a permanent tooth is not only upsetting but can also make regular, everyday things like eating and speaking difficult. Fortunately, the dental implant surgery is easier than you may think, and the entire surgical procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes. We’ll carefully help plan the entire treatment process, reviewing and explaining each step along the way.
When a patient loses a permanent tooth, a dental implant is the best alternative to a natural tooth. The implant acts like the root of the tooth when it’s placed in bone. A crown is then attached to the implant, which appears and functions like a natural tooth.
