Dental implants are the least invasive and best alternative to missing teeth. They function just like natural teeth, and people forget that they even have them. After a tooth is extracted and a bone graft is placed and healed, a dental implant is placed in the bone, which preserves the bone level and prevents further bone loss in the area and around adjacent teeth. Once the implant integrates with the bone, a crown can be made to fit on top of the implant. If multiple implants are in place then other restorative options, such as a bridge or a denture, can be made to fit on top of the implants.
