If you’re missing one tooth or a full row of teeth, dental implants create a natural looking, feeling, and functioning restoration option. We place implant posts, made from high quality titanium, into the gum line. Once in position, dental implants fuse with the jawbone closely mimicking the function of tooth roots. As the only tooth replacement solution that restores both the root system and the portion of the tooth visible above the gum line, dental implants outshine all the other tooth replacement solutions available today. Still, dental implants aren’t the right treatment options for every patient. The best way to learn more about dental implants and all of the high quality tooth replacement options we offer at Polished General Dentistry is to schedule a tooth replacement consultation. Call our Carlsbad dental team to get started down the road to a lifetime of healthy, flawless smiles today.
