Our skilled Dentist provides implant dentistry to replace your missing teeth and restore your smile. An implant is a type of prosthetic tooth designed to provide long-lasting and highly stable replacements for missing teeth. Implants may be used to replace single teeth or entire arches of teeth. Almost everyone is a candidate for dental implants, and as long as your bone and gums are healthy, you should be able to receive an implant without complications.
An implant consists of two main parts, an implant post and an implant restoration. The implant post is a screw, usually made of titanium, which is surgically inserted into the jawbone to replace the missing tooth root. Like the tooth root, it works to stimulate your supporting jawbone to keep it strong and healthy and provide a stable foundation for the tooth. The implant restoration is the replacement tooth that caps the post and completes the treatment. Depending on the number of missing teeth and your individual needs, your implant restoration may be a crown, bridge or denture. The implant restoration will be custom-designed to provide you with a comfortable and naturally beautiful result.
Implants are designed to look, feel and function just like your original teeth in order to restore your smile to its optimal health, function and appearance. When properly cared for with good oral hygiene and regular preventive care at our office, they can last for a lifetime.
