Dental implants can replace missing teeth as a long-lasting and aesthetically appealing restoration. Composed of an implant post and an implant restoration, dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, a few missing teeth or even complete dental arches. The first part of the implant, the implant post, is a titanium screw that is placed in the jawbone to act as the tooth root. The implant post stimulates the jawbone and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. Once the post is placed, it will be given a period of time to heal and to bond the biocompatible post with the bone.
After the healing period, the implant will be given the dental implant restoration, or replacement tooth, that “caps” the implant post. The dental implant restoration may be a dental crown, dental bridge or denture, depending on your needs. Our dentist will help you get the restoration that best fits you and your smile.
Dental implants are designed to look, function and feel just like your natural teeth so they can restore your smile’s health and appearance. With proper care, these restorations can last a lifetime.
