Are Dental Implants the Right Dental Option for Me?
What the ideal solution is for missing teeth isn’t the same for every person. You’ll want a thorough consultation with a qualified dentist to find out the best solution for your missing teeth.
However, while dental bridges were once the mainstay as a dental solution for missing teeth, dental implants are now a common dental procedure to fill the spot of a lost tooth and certainly a popular one with many benefits.
In order to find out if dental implants are the right solution for you, we will assess your oral situation by getting intra-oral photos, OPG Radiographs and CBCT Scans.
