Dental implants are dental restorations that replace the root of the tooth. They are designed to look and feel like your natural teeth, and they can be used to restore one or more teeth in your mouth, instead of having dental work done on all of them. Dental implants can be a great option for many patients, especially those who need dental care after missing an extended period of time, or those with advanced dental disease such as gum disease. Below, Aspen Hill Dental highlights some of the main dental implant benefits.
