Dental Implants to Replace Missing Teeth - Dr. Matthew Wolfe - Rochester Hills, MI
Dr. Matthew Wolfe: As a dentist, I like to save teeth, but sometimes that's not always possible. If somebody's missing a tooth and they want to replace it, nowadays, a dental implant is the best available option.
A dental implant is a titanium screw that basically goes into the space where the root of the missing tooth used to be. A customized crown is then attached to the top of that implant, resulting in a natural looking and natural feeling new tooth.
At our office, we understand that the planning of a dental implant is extremely critical to ensure that your new tooth resembles a natural tooth. Proper planning also insures the long-term success of your new tooth. So, if you have a tooth that's missing and you're looking to replace it, a dental implant may be the best option for you.
