A dental implant is an option for filling the space created by a missing tooth. Unlike a bridge , it does not rely on neighboring teeth for support. Another great advantage of an implant is that is considered a permanent restoration-meaning you can never get a cavity or decay on a dental implant!
If you are a good candidate for a dental implant, our dentist will work very closely with an implant specialist that will precisely and comfortably place the implant. This implant is typically made of a highly biocompatible titanium screw that is comfortably anchored into the jaw bone. Think of this screw as a tooth root. The implant is allowed to heal for a few months. Then, our dentist will take impressions for a natural-looking crown. After the crown is adjusted and approved for fit and esthetics, the crown is then secured to the implant.
A dental implant can also be used to secure a denture or bridge.
