As an oral surgeon I want to share with you a question I often get asked. What would you do if you had a missing tooth? Well that’s very easy. If I had a missing tooth, I would definitely want to have a dental implant to replace that space. That dental implant will allow me to basically replace that one missing tooth with a one-tooth solution. It avoids the chance of me compromising the other teeth in that area. It allows me to return to function, and it preserves the health of the gum tissue and the bone, Well as I put it simply it’s a second chance of the tooth. Is it a perfect solution? No it’s not a perfect solution, but is it the best solution that we have available.
