Dental implants are permanent, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace a single tooth, several missing teeth, or all of the teeth. The dental implant post, which is a titanium screw, is surgically placed into the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. This replaces the missing tooth root and helps ensure that the dental restoration is stable. In most cases, a period of healing is required to allow the bone to begin to bond with the biocompatible implant post. After this healing period is complete, our dentist will place the dental implant restoration, or replacement tooth, on top of the implant post. Depending on which teeth you are replacing and on your personal dental needs, your implant restoration may be a dental crown, bridge, or dentures. Each dental implant restoration is custom-made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically.
Replacing a missing tooth can restore your smile to optimal health, function, and appearance. A dental implant is a great option for restoring your smile because the implant is designed to function, look, and feel just like your natural teeth. Plus, with proper care, a dental implant can last a lifetime.
Implants can also be used to support your denture or a fixed bridge. Imagine being able to eat without having a loose denture! Imagine not having to take your teeth out to clean them! Through the use of dental locators or a fixed bridge, you can have dentures that snap into place, or dentures that are fixed in place like your normal teeth!
