If you need to replace a single missing tooth, or a string of teeth, dental implants are the closest thing to the real deal. Dental implants are one of the most versatile restorations available in dentistry. They can be used to replace teeth anywhere in your mouth, or to hold dentures in place. You can get one implant or many. They can be used to restore function to your smile or to fix a problem for purely cosmetic reasons. Whether your missing tooth was due to a bad encounter with a baseball as a youth or is the result of some other form of tooth breakdown as an adult, a dental implant can restore your smile.Book Appointment
What is a
A dental implant is a biocompatible titanium post that is surgically placed into your jawbone to replace the root of your missing tooth. During the healing period, the bone will fuse to the post and incorporate it into the jawbone, maintaining bone density and retaining the natural shape of the face. The top of the post is fashioned so that a dental crown, dental bridge or denture can be attached to finish off the restoration. While the dental implant is virtually the same for everyone, the restoration is unique to each individual depending on their particular smile requirements.
- Dental implants are a long-lasting solution to missing teeth.
- The titanium post replaces the root so adjacent teeth don’t shift around.
- Because the restoration is permanently fixed, it looks & feels completely natural.
- Dental implants prevent facial collapse due to tooth loss.
- The strength of implants helps prevent bite & TMJ problems.
- Dentures supported by implants are more stable.
- Dental implants are easy to take care of with regular brushing & flossing.
