REPLACE YOUR MISSING TOOTH WITH A DENTAL IMPLANT FOR A BEAUTIFUL SMILE, FUNCTIONAL BITE, AND HEALTHIER MOUTH!
Replacing Missing teeth: Your teeth exist as a part of your body like any other appendage. A missing tooth can impact not only your bite and speech, but also your appearance. It has been said that your smile is your greatest asset. When a single tooth is missing, there are multiple ways to replace it. The options for replacing teeth range from temporary to long lasting solutions. One such option includes the placement of a dental implant as the foundation for a crown. When multiple teeth are absent, multiple dental implants can be placed and used to support single crowns or even bridges.
Implants can provide alternative options for those who are disinterested in wearing partials or dentures. Today, implants have become the standard of care for replacement of teeth.
What is an implant? Each tooth in the mouth has two parts; one is for biting and the other is for anchoring. When a tooth is replaced, that replacement could require a dental implant. A dental implant for replacing a single tooth represents the anchoring portion. For those who are wearing dentures or have failing teeth, multiple dental implants can be placed. A bridge can then be attached to create a fixed option, thus avoiding removable dentures or partials.
How is an implant placed? Implants can be placed via a short surgical procedure. Our team works with restorative dentists and prosthodontists when placing implants.
Why would an implant be placed? Having a missing tooth can feel uncomfortable, affect your speech, look unsightly, and cause oral health issues later in life. Using a titanium post in place of your natural root, dental implants allow you to safely and painlessly restore your missing teeth.
