Dental implants are an excellent choice for replacing one or more missing teeth. A dental implant is a permanent tooth replacement that can improve the function, appearance, and health of your smile. Because they replace both the root and crown of the missing tooth, dental implants look and feel like natural teeth. Dental implants are surgically placed in the jaw, providing a stable foundation for the custom dental implant restoration. During a period of healing, the dental implant and the jawbone will begin to fuse together. After this period of healing, your talented dentist will place the dental implant restoration to complete the dental implant and restore your smile. Your dental implant restoration may be a:
- Dental bridge
- Dental crown
- Partial denture
- Full denture
When in place, a dental implant can improve your facial shape and volume, enhance the beauty of your smile, and restore your ability to chew, eat, and speak. A dental implant can also prevent the remaining natural teeth from shifting into the space left by the missing teeth. When properly cared for, a dental implant can last a lifetime!
