Dental implants are permanent, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace one, several, or all missing teeth. The dental implant post, which is a screw made of titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. This replaces the missing tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. A period of healing is then often required to allow the bone to begin to fuse with the biocompatible post. Following this healing period, our dentist will place the dental implant restoration, or replacement tooth, which fits on top of the implant post. Depending on which tooth or teeth are missing and your individual condition, your implant restoration might be a dental crown, dental bridge, complete denture, or partial denture. Each dental implant restoration is custom made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically.
Replacing a missing tooth or teeth can restore your smile to optimal health, function, and appearance. A dental implant is a great option for improving your smile because the implant is designed to look, function, and feel just like your natural teeth. With proper care, your implant/s can last a lifetime. For more information about the benefits of implant dentistry, and to schedule your implant consultation, please call or visit us soon.

Dental Implants vs. Other Solutions for Missing Teeth
Just as dental implants can last a lifetime if taken care of properly, they may also be the most affordable long-term solution compared to bridges or dentures. On average, bridges and dentures need to be replaced every 5 – 10 years. Therefore, over time these options become less affordable than dental implants, not to mention the fact that they don’t prevent bone loss and can severely limit the types of foods you can eat.
