What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a small titanium post that acts as an artificial root, replacing a missing tooth. It’s completed by the placement of a porcelain crown, with the two working in tandem to simulate a real, natural tooth! This only requires a minor surgical procedure, as the implant is placed into your jawbone and fuses together with it over time.
Why Dental Implants?
Implants are a safe, effective, and popular way of restoring teeth that have been lost. They are comfortable, natural looking, feeling, and functioning – no one will even be able to tell you’ve got one when you flash your smile!
Single-tooth replacements are a fantastic long-term investment for replacing a single tooth. They’ll never decay, and will help you maintain a proper smile.
Multi-tooth replacements are used commonly when three or more teeth are missing, and may be connected with a dental bridge.
Implant-supported dentures replace an entire row of teeth! The dentures provide structure and stability to your jaw, and are a great option for those looking for an option other than traditional dentures.
With proper maintenance and oral hygiene, dental implants can last a very long time! It’s our job to help you ensure the longevity of your dental work – meaning we’re always here to lend a helping hand before, during, and after the placement of your implant.
Are dental implants the best tooth-replacement option?
Dental implants are a fantastic and highly popular option for replacing teeth – but no treatment is a catch all “best” option. Your unique needs may call for a different approach, which we’re always happy to discuss with you.
