Our experienced dentists may recommend dental implants to give you back a beautiful, healthy smile. Implant dentistry is designed to replace your entire tooth, including the tooth root, with a solution that looks, feels and functions just like your original tooth. This makes implants an excellent long-term solution, as they work to restore both your oral function and health and your smile.
Implant consist of two parts — the implant post and the implant restoration. Implant posts are small screws, usually made from a biocompatible material such as titanium. This post is surgically inserted into your jawbone, where it replaces the tooth root and provides a stable foundation for your new tooth. After the post has integrated with your jawbone, our dentists will provide you with a custom restoration to cap the implant and finish restoring your smile. Depending on how many teeth you are replacing, the implant restoration may be a single crown, bridge, or complete or partial denture.
Implants are designed to last for a lifetime and require the same kind of care as your regular teeth — daily brushing and flossing combined with regular preventive care from our dentists and team.
