Dental implants can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth or even complete arches of teeth. Implants are stable tooth replacements that can last for several years and even an entire lifetime if properly taken care of. The dental implant post consists of a titanium screw that is surgically placed directly into the jawbone where your missing tooth was located. The post replaces the entire missing root of the tooth and makes for a stable foundation for the new tooth. After surgery, there is often a required period of healing so the biocompatible dental implant post can bond with the jawbone.
Following your healing period, our dentist will place a dental implant restoration, or replacement tooth, which fits on top of the implant post, finishing your new smile and protecting your implant from damage and decay. The type of replacement you will receive will depend on your dental needs and which of your teeth were missing. A restoration could consist of a dental crown, dental bridge or a complete or partial denture. We will custom make your implant restoration so it fits your smile perfectly, providing comfort and stability.
There are many benefits to replacing a missing tooth. You can restore your oral heath, oral function and your overall appearance. Dental implants are the best option to restoring missing teeth because they are designed look, function and feel like just natural teeth.
