A dental implant is an artificial tooth used to replace a missing natural tooth in order to fill a vacant space in the mouth. This implant prevents the lateral movement of residual natural teeth into the vacancy created by the missing natural tooth. The implant also restores pressure on the associated jaw to prevent bone loss. There are many options for restoring missing teeth but none have surpassed dental implants for durability and effectiveness. Gentle Dental Care works closely with dental specialists to ensure a safe, comfortable and professional result.
