Missing Teeth Replacement in Lihue

When you’ve suffered a lost tooth, you need a replacement. Even if the missing tooth isn’t visible, an absent tooth can allow your remaining teeth to shift out of place and may even lead to bone loss.

In the past, patients were limited to bridges, partials, and complete dentures. Thankfully, dental implants are available today. A dental implant is the next best thing to natural teeth. The implant is a post that is inserted surgically into your mouth. Over the next several months, the implant integrates with the bone that supports your teeth, forming a stable complex.

This integration means that your implant is permanent and fixed. Once your implant is completed with a crown, you can eat and speak as if you had all your organic teeth. Also, your implant will appear completely natural and blend with your other teeth.
