At Sherwood Forest Dental, we recommend dental implants as the most reliable and durable option for replacing missing teeth. An implant is a screw-shaped, a cylindrical fixture that is inserted inside the jaw bone to serve as a replacement root. A single implant can be used to replace up to two or three adjacent missing teeth, while only four implants can be used to support a prosthesis that replaces all missing teeth in a jaw. Dental implants are made from Titanium alloys or Zirconia, making them a safe, aesthetically pleasant and durable tooth replacement option. Missing teeth replaced with dental implants look, feel and function just like the natural teeth.
