Health Tip: Do You Need a Dental Implant?

(HealthDayNews) -- If you are missing teeth from an injury, disease or decay, a dental implant is one way to give you back your smile.

According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, an implant acts as an anchor for a crown or a set of replacement teeth.

People of all ages can benefit from an implant, and it is especially practical for patients who no longer can wear removable dentures.

To be a candidate, however, it's important to have enough healthy bone to support the implant. Your dentist, after a careful evaluation of your dental and medical history, can help you decide if this option is best.
