Instead of a removable or fixed bridge, many patients with a missing tooth are choosing dental implants for replacement. Implants look, feel, and function like a solid, natural tooth because they mimic tooth structure. The procedure involves placement of a small titanium screw into the jaw. Atop this screw, our doctors secure a permanent, esthetic crown that blends seamlessly with surrounding teeth. Patients can care for implants just as they do natural teeth with twice daily brushing, daily flossing, and two checkups each year. For more information give the Forte Implant Center a call.
