Dental implants are considered the gold standard to tooth replacement due to their security in the jaw, natural appearance and lifelike function.

Dental implants are surgically placed within your jaw bone, so choosing an experienced oral surgeon can help you avoid potential complications that those without advanced medical training and backgrounds may not have experienced.
