If you have had a dental implant to replace a missing tooth, you are in good company. Dental implants are a popular choice for those seeking an effective tooth replacement option. Since dental implants handily replace one or more lost teeth by replicating both the tooth root and the crown of the tooth, they are made durable, and long-lasting. Dr. Hastings a Boise dentist adds that dental implants can last a life time with proper care.
