A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that an Oral Implantologist like Dr. Kuldeep Singh places into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, failure of endodontics, an injury, or some other reason.
Dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support.

As you know, your own teeth require conscientious at-home oral care and regular dental visits. Dental implants are like your own teeth and will require the same care. In order to keep your implant clean and plaque-free, brushing and flossing still apply!
After treatment, periodic follow-up visits will be scheduled to monitor your implant, teeth and gums to make sure they are healthy.
