Are you missing one, several, or all of your teeth? Looking for a dental treatment that can replace your missing smile permanently? Dental implants are a newer option in restorative dentistry and provide a stable, secure, and permanent option for replacing a missing tooth or teeth.
Dental implants are actually comprised of multiple parts, often including an implant, an abutment, and a prosthetic. The implant is a tiny titanium post which is secured to the underlying jaw bone, eventually fusing and becoming part of you. The abutment is attached to allow the prosthetic to be secured. The prosthetic can be a dental crown, a dental bridge, and even dentures, depending upon the exact condition of a patient’s oral health and their ultimate smile goals. Our prosthetics are designed to look just like a natural smile and will blend with any existing teeth you may have.
Certain patients may not be candidates for implant dentistry, such as those with extreme bone loss, gum disease, or even certain autoimmune conditions. We would be happy to discuss your oral and overall health to help determine whether you are a candidate.
