Dental Implants Procedure
Implants can be ideal for missing teeth, as they are comfortable, natural looking and function well. Missing teeth can cause discomfort, embarrassment, and problems with chewing and speaking, so our dentist restores them with this restoration that has a post acting as a tooth root and a crown that blends in with your smile.
Dental implants are lasting, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth or complete arches of teeth. The dental implant post, which is a screw made of titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. It replaces the missing tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. A period of healing is then often required to allow the bone to begin to bond with the biocompatible post.
Following a healing period our dentist will then place the final prosthetic. Depending on which teeth are missing and your personal dental needs, your implant restoration might be a dental crown, dental bridge, or a complete or partial denture.
