Dental implants offer a natural-looking and low maintenance solution to replace missing teeth. A dental implant is a “root” structure, usually made of titanium, that is carefully placed into the jaw where the natural root would have been. It is then left alone to integrate with the jaw bone so they fuse together. Once integrated a crown, bridge or denture can be fixed onto the implant. Dental implants can be used to:
- Replace a single missing tooth
- Replace several missing teeth using a bridge or crowns
- Replace all the teeth using crowns, bridges or implant-supported dentures
Because the implant fuses to your bone, dental implant restorations feel much like natural teeth. Some people also find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes, such as bridge and dentures.
Are You A Candidate For Dental Implants?
To have dental implants, it is ideal to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. If you are interested in getting implants placed in our office but don’t have sufficient bone, Dr. Shauna Novak or Dr. Debra McGill may recommend a bone graft procedure. Bone grafting helps to generate bone in that region. There are many options for tooth replacement , A thorough evaluation will help determine the best option for you!
