Dental implants are a popular and effective solution for patients who suffer from missing teeth, damaged teeth, or chronic dental problems that require tooth replacement.
Dental implants feel like natural teeth and serve as an alternative to dentures, partials, bridges, and crowns.
Dentists use a medical-grade titanium post that is capable of fusing with the bones of the jaw. The implant post provides a strong and durable anchor for the abutment and crown.
Dental implants typically have three parts:
1) The implant: A screw or post that functions as the tooth’s root.
2) The abutment: A permanent connector that supports a tooth or set of teeth.
3) The crown (or prosthetic tooth): This is a cap that provides a pleasing cosmetic appearance and natural function of the teeth.
Our dentist can place your new dental implant to restore the look, feel, and function of a missing tooth, several teeth, or secure a dental implanted secured denture.
