Missing a tooth is actually fairly common among the American population. Fortunately, dental implants have proven to be an effective solution that not only restores your smile, but actually helps maintain bone and gum line at the site of the missing tooth. Dental implants can be an option for patients in their late teens and beyond. Dental implants are a highly successful alternative for tooth replacement. When considering a dental implant, Echo Family Dental will help you determine if you’re a good candidate for this type of procedure, which will be done by a trusted oral surgeon. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have, and can explain the process in greater detail to help you make a decision. If you do choose to receive a dental implant, the surgeon will need to place the implant post and allow that to attach to the bone. From there, our clinic will take care of placing your final crown or bridge using our Restorative Services. To learn more about dental implants, please contact Echo Family Dental.
