An implant is the most natural looking and longest lasting way of replacing a lost tooth. Unlike dentures or a bridge, an implant is permanently fixed in place and is independent, not relying on the neighbouring teeth. Thus, an implant looks and feels just like a natural tooth. This is accomplished by placing the implant in such a way that it replicates the root of a tooth. A crown is then fixed to the implant. Losing a tooth is not only upsetting, but it can also affect the health of your other teeth and impair the proper functioning of your mouth/jaw. Given this, it is almost always best to replace any lost teeth and fill any gaps. An implant provides the next best thing to having your own natural tooth in terms of its functioning, appearance, and comfort.
