Dental implants are considered the ideal replacements for missing teeth because they are designed to look, feel and function exactly like your natural teeth. They can be used to replace a single tooth, several teeth or an entire arch of teeth as needed. Implants consist of two main parts: the implant post and the implant restoration. The dental implant post is a small screw, usually made of titanium, and is surgically placed into the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth or teeth. It replaces the tooth root, ensuring that your restoration will be stable and performing the same functions as your tooth root in stimulating your supporting bone to keep it healthy.
After you have healed from your implant placement procedure, our dentist will then provide your implant restoration. A dental implant restoration is the replacement tooth or teeth, which fits on top of the implant post. Depending on your needs, it may be a dental crown, dental bridge, or complete or partial denture. Your restoration is custom-designed to fit your smile perfectly and provide you with a beautiful result.
Almost everyone is a candidate for implant dentistry. In fact, as long as your mouth is healthy, you should be able to receive an implant without any difficulty. If you have a preexisting condition, such as tooth decay, gum disease or bone loss, you will need to receive treatment for that issue before you can receive an implant. Implants will last for a lifetime if cared for with proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits.
