What is a dental implant?
Dental implants are metal posts that are surgically placed below the gums. These posts fuse to the surrounding jaw bone and allow for a crown, bridge or denture to be attached.
Can you really never get a cavity with an implant?
This is correct. You can never get a cavity on the implant, but routine dental care is needed for optimal gum and bone health.
Why would I want a dental implant?
Dental implants have a very high success rate and are often considered more predictable than alternative dental treatment options. A dental implant can securely hold a denture in place or be the support system for a crown or bridge for many years. Dental implants also allow the option for a single crown opposed to a bridge to replace a missing tooth.
