Dental implants offer something no other tooth replacement method does: a comprehensive solution following tooth loss. Dental implants take the place of the missing root structure. A prosthetic tooth is affixed on top with a connecting abutment. Dental implant procedures are 95% successful in eligible candidates. When properly maintained, dental implants can last a lifetime. They are the best options for replacing missing teeth. Implants can be used to restore single teeth, abutments for bridges to replace multiple teeth, or affix dentures.
