Dental Implants

Dental implants offer a reliable and long-lasting solution for individuals with missing teeth, whether it’s one tooth, several or an entire set. These implants consist of several parts – first, a titanium screw-like post, which serves as an artificial tooth root. Surgically placed into the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth, this post becomes a sturdy foundation for your dental restoration. The biocompatible nature of titanium encourages bone bonding during a healing period following the implant’s insertion.

Once the jawbone has sufficiently integrated with the implant post, our dentist will proceed to affix the second part of your implant, the dental implant restoration, which can vary depending on your specific dental needs. This custom-made restoration can take the form of a dental crown, dental bridge, a complete denture or partial denture. Regardless of the choice, the goal is to ensure a comfortable and aesthetically pleasing fit that blends seamlessly with your natural teeth.

The benefits of dental implants are numerous. They not only restore your smile to its former glory but also contribute to improved oral health and function. Dental implants mimic the look, feel and function of natural teeth, offering a seamless and durable solution that can endure a lifetime with proper care. Anyone who has lost a tooth is a candidate for implant dentistry, though you may need to receive additional treatments prior to receiving an implant if you have tooth decay, gum disease or another preexisting condition.
