Whether you lost your tooth due to an accident, gum disease and decay, or fractures, we understand how important it is to your confidence and quality of life to have a beautiful, full set of teeth. As the name suggests, dental implants replace missing teeth and restore function. If you are only missing a tooth or are not a candidate for other replacement options such as bridges or hybrid dentures, dental implants are the best, most trustworthy dental restoration solution for you. Unlike dentures that are at risk for sliding around your mouth, a dental implant is a permanent solution that stays put, and can only be removed by your dentist or periodontist.
There are many benefits to selecting dental implants over alternatives, including:
- Preserving the jawbone and reducing future bone loss
- Maintaining the shape of your face and a youthful appearance
- Serving as the healthiest restorative measure for neighboring teeth
There are two procedures to complete the dental implant restoration process: implant placement and crown placement. The implant is custom made of either titanium or ceramic and will act as a new root for a crown to be placed upon, which will be customized to fit where the missing tooth was. Each crown is specifically designed to match the current color and texture of your surrounding teeth and shaped to provide the best look and feel. To begin treatment, we will start by getting a full medical history and discussing your desired results to determine if a dental implant is the best option for you.
