If you are missing one or more teeth, we bmay recommend a dental implant. A dental implant is a permanent tooth replacement that is designed to replace both the root and crown of the missing tooth. Patients often remark that a dental implant feels very similar to a natural tooth. To replace the root of the missing tooth, the dental implant is surgically placed in the jawbone. During a period of healing, the jawbone and dental implant begin to fuse together, providing a stable foundation for the dental implant restoration. Your knowledgeable dentist will then place the dental implant restoration. Your dental implant restoration may be a:
- Full denture
- Partial denture
- Dental crown
- Dental bridge
Dental implants are custom made to comfortably fit your smile and effectively restore your oral health, function, and appearance. Dental implant restorations are created to match the look and feel of natural teeth, so no one will know that you were ever missing a tooth. Whether you are missing just one tooth, several teeth, or all of the natural teeth, dental implants can be the right solution to restore your smile. We welcome you to call or visit us to learn more!
