Dr. Travelle is committed to saving teeth whenever possible. There are some instances, however, when a tooth cannot be repaired and must be removed. Dental implants offer an ideal replacement option for missing or badly decayed teeth because they look, feel, and act just like your natural tooth.
A dental implant is a single tooth replacement. Dental implants are often the only way to restore chewing function and esthetics when one or more teeth are missing. Dental implants can replace multiple missing teeth by supporting dental bridges or dentures.
With advances in materials and techniques, implant surgery healing time is shorter than ever. Please don’t hesitate to ask if dental implants are right for you. Dr. Travelle will be happy to answer any questions you may have about dental implants at your next visit.
