MORE LIFELIKE REPLACEMENT TEETH WITH IMPLANT DENTISTRY
Anyone can lose teeth to injury, disease, medications, and other problems. Fortunately, modern prosthodontic dentistry has brought us a biomimetic (life-imitating) restorative treatment for replacing one or more missing teeth: dental implants.
What Are Dental Implants?
Much like natural teeth, dental implants feature a root and crown structure. The root is made of a biocompatible material, like titanium, so that bone will naturally integrate with it. This root, or post, becomes the anchor for a single dental crown. When a patient needs multiple teeth replaced, a few posts are placed to secure a bridge, partial, or denture.
How Are Dental Implants Placed?
We work closely with an oral surgeon or periodontist in an interdisciplinary approach to dental implant procedures. You can rest assured knowing that a specialist is on hand to perform surgical placement of your implants. After the brief surgical procedure, you’ll wear temporary teeth while your jawbone grows into the implants – a process called osseointegration. Once your implant posts are solid, we will design and secure your crown, partial, or denture.
