Dental implants are permanent replacements for your missing teeth. They may be recommended to replace a single tooth, several teeth or an entire arch of teeth. Implants are often considered to be the ideal tooth replacement option, as they replace both the root and the crown of your tooth to restore full oral function and your quality of life as well as your smile.
A dental implant consists of two main parts, the implant post and the implant restoration. The implant post replaces the tooth root, and is surgically inserted into your jawbone at the site of the missing tooth in order to provide a stable foundation for the tooth. Implant posts are made of biocompatible material, such as titanium, and work to stimulate your supporting bone to keep it strong and healthy.
After you have recovered from your implant placement, our dentist will provide you with an implant restoration. The implant restoration replaces the crown of the missing tooth. For a single tooth, a dental crown will be used. Depending on how many teeth you are replacing, a dental bridge or a complete or partial denture may be recommended. Your restoration will be custom-designed to fit your smile perfectly and provide you with a long-term solution.
