Implants

Dental Implants May Offer a Practical Solution to Tooth Loss

 

 
 

Tooth loss doesn't have to stop your smile from saying great things about you. Cosmetic dentistry has many tooth-replacement options that allow you to recapture your youthful appearance and restore the function of your teeth. One which we might recommend is a dental implant.

Dental implants provide a look and feel that's very close to natural teeth. Implants are metal posts or frames surgically placed beneath your gums. After placement, the implants fuse to the bone of your jaw and act as artificial tooth roots. Replacement teeth are attached to the implant.

The implant remains below your gums and the bone grows to hold the implant securely in place. This allows the implant to function much like the root of your tooth, providing a stable structure that will eventually become the base structure for a new crown. We will usually wait several weeks before proceeding with a crown in order to be sure the implant is ready to support a new crown. We will provide you with a temporary appliance to wear during this process.
