A dental implant is an ideal tooth restoration for people who are missing one or more teeth for reasons like injury or periodontal disease.
The implant process begins when a metal post is surgically positioned into the jaw. This post will act as a permanent “root” for the implanted tooth. Once it is in place, the surrounding bone and tissue needs time to heal.
After the metal post is placed for a dental implant, an implant restoration is placed. We will work carefully to ensure that your new crown looks, acts and feels natural.
A dental implant is an ideal tooth restoration for people who are missing one or more teeth. While implants are typically more expensive than other methods of tooth replacement, they provide superior benefits. Implants are stronger than natural teeth and last many years. They are also a more favorable approach than bridgework, because they do not depend on neighboring teeth for support.
