Dental implants are a type of prosthetic teeth designed to replace your missing teeth. They can be used to replace a single tooth, several teeth or a complete dental arch. Unlike other tooth replacement options, implants replace both the roots and the crowns of your missing teeth, giving you a final result that looks, feels and functions exactly like your original tooth, including stimulating your supporting jawbone to keep it healthy and give your teeth a stable foundation.
Implants consist of two main parts – an implant post and an implant restoration. The implant post is made of a biocompatible material and surgically inserted into the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. It replaces the tooth root, and after it has integrated with your jawbone will help support the implant restoration so that you can chew, eat and speak normally. The implant restoration is placed atop the implant post to complete your treatment. Depending on how many teeth you are replacing the implant restoration could be a crown, bridge, or a complete or partial denture. Your restoration will be custom-made to fit your mouth and smile comfortable and provide you with final result that is both functional and aesthetic.
Almost everyone is a candidate for implant dentistry. If you are missing teeth and your mouth is healthy you should be able to receive an implant without any problems. Our dentist will carefully examine your mouth before your implant treatment to determine if you require any additional treatments, such as bone grafting or treatment for tooth decay or gum disease, before you can receive an implant.
You can expect your implant to last a lifetime if you are properly caring for it with good oral hygiene and regular preventive care from our dentist.
