Losing a tooth can not only cause damage to the immediate area, it can also affect the surrounding gums, jaw, muscles, and joints. The remaining teeth will often shift to compensate for the missing one. Dental implants anchor into the bone and replace the missing tooth. Placing a dental implant will usually require a few appointments over a couple of months as there are several stages that must be completed, although there are cases where an extraction and implant may be completed the same day. Placing a dental implant usually requires the collaboration of an Oral Surgeon (specialist).
