Have you ever wondered what your smile might look like if that missing tooth wasn’t missing?
Dental implants are an effective way to permanently replace missing or damaged teeth. They are used as an alternative to dentures and bridges because they do not affect your existing teeth.
Dental implants are artificial titanium tooth roots that support the false teeth, such as a crown. These roots look a little like a metal screw and each implant is surgically placed into the bone where it functions similarly to a natural tooth root. Once healing and new bone development have occurred, the fixed tooth can be attached.
Benefits of dental implants include:
Our dentists will coordinate your treatment plan with an oral surgeon for placing the implants, and then take care of crafting and fixing crowns once the implants have healed. This treatment plan may also include dealing with another pressing oral health concerns, like gum disease and decay, before getting implants.
