Dental implants are the first step towards restoring missing teeth for Destin patients. Seacrest Dental offers implant dentistry to all our patients to help rebuild their smiles. A dental implant is a device which is fused with the bone. Apart from acting as an anchor for the replacement tooth, the implant restores the function of the bone.
When you lose a tooth, the ability of the bone to regenerate is lost. Regeneration is promoted by the roots of the teeth, which is why it is so important to have missing teeth replaced. The implant acts as a substitute for the root, allowing the natural relationship between root and bone to continue. Once the replacement tooth is in place, you will be able to eat, drink and smile again.
