Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth, which impacts your overall oral health.
Without an implant, the teeth surrounding the gap may begin to shift out of place and cause misalignment issues.

If your jaw bone is not strong enough to support a dental implant, you may require a bone graft or sinus lift before it can be placed.
