Incredible success has been achieved in the field of implant dentistry over the last three decades. Dental implants are the preferred choice for tooth replacement thanks to their high level of performance and nearly perfect rate of success.
For adults who are missing one or more teeth and desire a permanent, stable, and attractive replacement, we proudly recommend dental implants.
Understanding Dental Implants
The root portion of a missing natural tooth can be replaced with a titanium post known as a dental implant. The implant is approximately the same shape and size as the original tooth root and, once it has become fused to the jaw bone, will be just as strong and as stable as the original tooth root.
With your artificial tooth root in place, a dental crown can be designed to fit on top of it, effectively restoring the function and appearance that you once enjoyed from your natural tooth. A dental implant is supported solely by the jaw bone without requiring the involvement of the adjacent teeth. This design feature makes the dental implant an impressively conservative and more natural alternative than other tooth replacement choices.
Customizing Dental Implants
Dental implants are fully customizable and can be the perfect choice for replacing just one tooth or all of the teeth. A dental crown that is supported by a dental implant post will replace a single tooth, while multiple implants can be used to anchor dentures and partials for the replacement of many teeth. Dental implant restorations will not need to be removed from the mouth and will not restrict your eating preferences.
Making the Choice
Is cosmetic dentistry and dental implants the right choice for you? We will need to confirm that you are in good health and that you have adequate bone volume in the jaw. This can be verified with a clinical examination and digital x-rays. Once we are confident that dental implants are a suitable solution for you, we can design a treatment strategy, moving forward at a pace that is comfortable for you.
