A dental implant is a great, permanent way to replace a missing tooth. To perform this procedure, a titanium post (the implant) is set into your jaw bone where it recreates the root of a tooth. An artificial tooth on top of the implant (known as a crown) is attached. Once complete, you have a replacement tooth that is as good as a natural one.
Braces and Implants
Some people are born with a missing tooth, and others need to have a permanent tooth removed for various reasons.
When considering braces and implants, it’s best to plan ahead, because, since implants are surgically placed in the jaw bone, they can’t be moved.
