Dental implant treatment is the preferred method of tooth replacement, as it replaces missing tooth roots, helping to preserve the bone in the jaw and the original shape of the face. They are made of titanium and function in the same way that a natural tooth with a crown would function. Here at Eckman Family Dentistry, our doctors are trained and highly skilled at placing implants and enjoy providing you with this option right in our office! If you have a missing tooth or a tooth that is failing don’t hesitate to ask our docs if an implant would be the right choice for your situation!
