Dental Implants

Dental implants are the single, strongest, most predictable restoration for missing teeth.  Featuring up to a 98% 5 year survival rate in the lower arch, it is stronger and more practical than a porcelain or composite bridge.  It is more expensive, but may have an indefinite life expectancy if you effectively care for it.
