Dental implants are a popular and effective tooth replacement option that is long-lasting and reliable. Implants can be used to replace a single tooth, replace multiple missing teeth or anchor a complete arch denture to replace a full arch of teeth. The implant comes in two parts. The first part, known as a dental implant post, is a titanium screw made of a specific biocompatible material that is surgically set in your jawbone in place of your missing tooth root. This ensures your implant is stable and encourages positive bone growth in your jaw. Once the post is placed, there is a mandatory healing period in which the post begins to bond with your natural bone.
After you are fully healed, our dentist will attach the second part of your implant: your dental restoration. The restoration fits on top of your implant post and replaces the visible part of your tooth or teeth. Depending on your specific needs, this restoration may be a single dental crown, a dental bridge, or a complete or partial denture. Each restoration will be custom made to fill your specific cosmetic and practical dental needs.
Replacing your missing tooth or teeth takes you one step closer to restoring your beautiful, healthy, functional smile, and with proper care, your implant can last a lifetime.
