Implants are replacement tooth roots that consists of a small post that is placed into the bone socket where the tooth is missing. The implant is covered with a replacement tooth called a crown. Implants can be used to replace a single tooth, two or more implants can serve as a stable support for the replacement of many teeth and even be used to anchor full replacement dentures.
Are Implants a good option for you?
Dental implants are a great option for people in good oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, injury, or decay.
- Replace one or more teeth without affecting the adjoining teeth
- Support a bridge and eliminate the need for a removable partial denture
- Provide support for a denture, making it more stable and comfortable
To be a good candidate for implant dentistry you must be in good general and oral health. You need adequate bone in your jaw to support the implant, and the best candidates have healthy gum tissues that are free of periodontal disease.
Where Do I Start?
This procedure is a team effort between you and your dental team. A consultation will help determine where and how your implant should be placed. Depending on your specific condition and the type of implant chosen, your dentist will create a plan that is right for you. No matter what your age may be, whether you need to replace one tooth, or many, there is a dental implant solution for you.
And The Results?
The best! You will have the best option available for replacement of missing teeth. Implants look and feel like natural teeth and also aid in preserving the surrounding bone structure.
