A dental implant can be used to restore a single tooth or an entire set of teeth. Dental implants involve the placement of a surgical grade titanium post(s) directly into the jawbone by one of our trusted specialists. As the bone bonds to the post(s) it forms a secure foundation for the attachment of a dental prosthetic (crown, bridge or denture) that is custom created for you.
Q: What are my options for replacing a missing tooth?
A: By replacing missing teeth either with a bridge or with an implant, you will alleviate the problems associated with a missing tooth and will restore your smile back to its beautiful, full appearance. A bridge is one solution for replacing a tooth. By using neighboring teeth as the supportive structure, your dentist places a porcelain restoration into the vacant space, restoring the functionality and look of your smile. A dental implant is also an excellent solution. Dental implants involve the placement of a titanium post directly into the jawbone. Once the post has bonded to the bone, it can act as a new, solid support for a natural looking, porcelain restoration. Implants can replace a single tooth, or an entire set of teeth, offering more function and permanence than traditional dentures.
