Missing teeth? Our skilled dentists and team offer dental implants to replace your missing teeth and fully restore your oral health and smile. Dental implants are considered the ideal option for replacing missing teeth. Not only do they restore your beautiful smile but they also replace the missing tooth root to promote better long-term oral health and function.
Implants consist of two main parts – the implant post and the implant restoration. The implant post replaces the tooth root, and it is surgically inserted into the jawbone. This helps ensure that the replacement tooth is stable and performs the same functions as the original tooth root in stimulating your supporting bone and keeping it healthy. The implant restoration replaces the visible portion of the tooth, and it is provided after you have healed from having the implant post placed. Depending on the number of teeth you are replacing and your individual needs, the implant restoration could be a single crown, a dental bridge or a complete or partial denture.
Prior to providing you with a dental implant, our dentists will meet with you to evaluate your mouth and determine if an implant is right for you. Almost everyone is a candidate for implant dentistry, though if you have a pre-existing condition such as tooth decay, periodontal disease or bone loss, you will need to receive treatment for that problem prior to receiving an implant. Your implant will look, feel and function exactly like your original tooth, and it is designed to last for a lifetime when properly cared for with good oral hygiene habits and regular dental visits.
