At our dental practice, we offer dental implants as a reliable and long-lasting solution to replace missing teeth. These implants can replace a single missing tooth, multiple teeth or even a full set of teeth. The process involves surgically placing a titanium screw, which acts as a replacement for the tooth root, into the jawbone where the tooth is missing. This screw provides a sturdy foundation for the dental restoration.
After the implant post is placed, a healing period is necessary to allow the bone to fuse with the post. Once the implant has fully integrated with the jawbone, a custom-made dental restoration is placed on top of the post. The restoration can be a dental crown, bridge or denture, depending on your individual needs.
Dental implants provide several benefits over other tooth replacement options. They are designed to closely mimic the look, function and feel of natural teeth, and with proper care, they can last a lifetime. Dental implants can also help restore your oral health, improve your ability to chew and speak, and enhance the appearance of your smile.
Our experienced dental team will work closely with you to determine if dental implants are the best solution for your unique dental needs. We are committed to providing high-quality care and helping you achieve optimal oral health and a beautiful smile.
