If you are missing teeth, dental implants could be the treatment for you! Dental implants are permanent replacements for teeth, and they are designed to look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth, all the way from the root to the crown.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or an entire arch of teeth. When our dentist performs a dental implant procedure, he begins by surgically placing a titanium post into your jawbone. This post replaces your missing tooth and actually performs the same function as a natural tooth root. This helps to stimulate your jawbone, thus keeping the bone tissue healthy and preventing deterioration.
After your surgical site has had time to heal and the implant post has integrated with your bone, our dentist will design and place a restoration, or replacement tooth, atop the implant. This restoration could be a crown, bridge, or a complete or partial denture. We will evaluate your mouth and work with you to determine which type of restoration will be most beneficial to you based on the amount and placement of your missing teeth.
