Dental implants are stable restorations that are designed to replace booth the root and crown of the tooth. They can be used to replace a single tooth, several teeth or complete arches of teeth. The titanium implant post is surgically placed in the jawbone to replace the tooth root and provide a stable foundation for the replacement tooth. A period of healing may be necessary to allow the jawbone to bond with the implant post.
After the healing period, our dentist will attach a dental restoration, or tooth replacement, to the top of the implant post. Depending on your specific needs, your restoration may be a dental crown, dental bridge or dentures. The restoration will be custom-made for ideal fit, functionality and appearance.
Dental implants are designed to look, feel and function like natural teeth. If they are cared for properly, as you would your natural teeth, implants can last a lifetime. To learn more and schedule a consultation, contact our office today.
