Stability and Support
Dental Implants Can Help Give You A Complete Smile
Dental implants replace both a tooth’s root and crown. A skilled oral surgeon will administer the placement of a biocompatible titanium post in the jawbone. Over a few months, the post will bond with the bone. Once the bonding is complete, we add the restoration. We place an abutment on the post that holds the restoration, typically a dental crown, in place. The result is a new tooth that looks completely natural.
The Benefits Of Dental Implants
Dental implants feature several benefits, such as a lifelike appearance, simple maintenance, remaining secure when eating or speaking, and helping maintain your facial structure.
Who Qualifies For Dental Implants?
We recommend them for patients who have lost one or more teeth. In order to qualify you will need to have an adequate amount of jawbone tissue to support the prosthetic. If you do not, we may recommend a bone grafting. In addition, you should have gums free of periodontal disease, as gum disease can lead to an increased risk of tooth loss and implant failure.
