What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are small titanium posts that are placed into your jawbone in the empty space left by missing teeth. The implants are topped with a restoration such as a crown, bridge, or denture to then complete your smile. We use natural-looking restorations on top of dental implants, so your new tooth or teeth will blend right in with your natural teeth.
How It Works
First, we prepare the area for the implant. If an extraction is needed, we’ll complete that. We can also perform a bone graft if the jawbone in the immediate area isn’t strong enough to support an implant.
Next, we place the implant. The post is made of titanium and will bond with the bone to form a solid anchor for the restoration.
Finally, once the implant has fused with the bone, we create and place your restoration. For single implants, we typically place a dental crown. When there are multiple implants placed, we’ll help you decide whether a dental bridge or a denture is the best restoration for you.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Compared to less permanent restorations, such as removable bridges and dentures that don’t use implants, dental implants offer a number of benefits.
- Permanent replacement of missing teeth (proper care helps them last for years)
- Restore full function of teeth (including chewing)
- Easy to care for
