A front tooth is called an anterior tooth. The anterior teeth are the six top and six bottom front teeth that you can often see when a person smiles. In the past, when a front tooth was missing, dentists filed down the natural healthy teeth next to the missing tooth to make a bridge. Today, an anterior dental implant gives a patient another choice. In the debate between a dental implant vs bridge, the implant is usually the choice.
An anterior dental implant can be inserted into the bone underneath the missing tooth. After the bone grows onto the implant, a post can be inserted into it. A beautiful and natural looking crown can then be constructed to go on top of the post. The tooth implant costs involve the total of each dental implant procedure.
