A popular and effective dental treatment for missing teeth, dental implants can help restore your smile and allow you to eat and talk freely once again. Unlike bridges and dentures, implants are permanently anchored in place with a post that mimics the tooth root. This ensures stability and a more natural, long lasting result. Implants also offer many benefits that include a more natural appearance and function, as well as convenience you can’t get with dentures or bridges.

Dental implants are a long lasting, durable treatment for tooth replacements that can be used to replace a single missing tooth, several missing teeth or complete arches of teeth. The dental implant post is a screw made of titanium, which is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. It replaces the missing tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is secure and stable. Once the implant has been placed in your jaw bone, a period of healing is often required to allow the bone to start bonding with the biocompatible post.
Following this healing period, our dentist will place an implant restoration, which is the replacement tooth, on top of the implant post. Depending on your personal dental needs, your implant restoration might be a dental crown, dental bridge, or a complete or partial denture. Each dental implant restoration is custom-made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically.
Replacing a missing tooth doesn’t just enhance your appearance, but it can restore your smile to optimal health and function, as well. Patients enjoy the many benefits of dental implant especially that they look, function and feel just like your natural teeth. Not to mention, with proper care they can last a lifetime.
