If you lose a tooth, your dentist will encourage you to replace it as quickly as possible. Two of the most popular solutions are dental implants and dental bridges. Each is quite different, so you will need to decide which option is best for you. Dental Implants A dental implant is an advanced way to restore a missing tooth, consisting of an artificial tooth root in the shape of a small screw inserted into the jawbone. The screw may be made from titanium, a highly biocompatible metal or from a ceramic material called zirconia.
