Dental implants are the next best thing to real teeth!
If you have suffered tooth loss from an injury, decay, or periodontal disease, all is not lost — you have options! The cosmetic dental team at Cambridge Family smiles can create a dental implant to restore your smile.
Dental implants are artificial teeth that are implanted into the jaw with artificial tooth roots. Once the dental implants are placed in your jaw, the titanium tooth root bonds with your natural bone and become a permanent sturdy base for the newly implanted tooth. Dental implants have been used for more than 30 years to offer new teeth that look, feel, and function as all of your natural teeth.
Dental implants are particularly useful for front teeth because they are custom-made to match your natural teeth and fit in the space perfectly. Additionally, once the artificial tooth is implanted, it is not removable the way bridges and dentures are.
Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are installed using a multi-step approach to make the procedure one of the safest and most predictable cosmetic dentistry procedures. First, the titanium root is installed directly into the jawbone. Next, an artificial tooth is created to look and feel like the missing tooth and match the rest of your teeth. Once the root is installed, the new artificial tooth is attached to the root permanently.
