If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants are an excellent solution for restoring the function and beauty of your smile. Dental implants are permanent tooth replacements that replace both the root and crown of the tooth for a secure, naturalistic restoration. The dental implant is surgically placed in the jawbone to provide a stable foundation for the artificial tooth. Following a period of healing, your talented dentists will place the dental implant restoration. Depending on your personal dental needs and on how many teeth are missing, your dental implant restoration may be:
- A dental bridge
- A dental crown
- A full denture
- A partial denture
Your dental implant restoration will improve your ability to chew, eat and speak properly, as well as restoring the appearance of your smile. Each restoration will be made to fit and blend in with your unique smile.
