Implant restoration involves surgically anchoring implants into the jawbone below the gum line, then attaching an artificial tooth to those implants. After the implant has been placed, your gum and bone will continue to grow around it, ensuring that the implant stays firmly in place.
Implants are indicated whenever at least one tooth is missing. If the missing space(s) is not filled, the teeth surrounding the space often drift, the opposing teeth in the other arch will erupt further into the oral cavity (hypereruption) which can change your bite, bone erosion can occur in the area, and even changes in speech might occur. The popularity of implants has increased steadily over the years.
