A dental implant consists of three separate components: a root implant, connector post and crown. The root implant, a metallic post, is placed into the missing tooth’s bone socket. It is permanently anchored to the jaw as the jawbone heals. A small connector post known as an abutment is then securely attached to the root implant. The abutment holds the crown, which is a replacement tooth individually made to match the appearance of your natural teeth.
Implants are a great solution for patients with missing or damaged teeth. They are also a wonderful alternative to bridges and partial dentures for tooth replacement. Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth.
At your first visit, we examine your teeth and discuss the options that are specific to your needs. You should expect to spend twenty minutes in conversation with the dental team. During this time, you will ask and answer questions and look at models of related procedures. In addition, you’ll go through an estimate for the work that is needed and discuss financial options. Sometimes, it is necessary to take X-rays, measurements and/or molds of your teeth in order to make good-quality judgments. If you approve of the plan, appointments are scheduled.
Improved appearance: Dental implants feel and look like your natural teeth and can restore your smile’s natural radiance and balance.
Improved comfort: Permanent dental implants are more comfortable than removable dentures because they are securely placed in the jaw.
Improved confidence: Dental implants can restore your ability to smile with confidence.
Improved Speech: Unlike poor-fitting dentures, dental implants are individually designed to fit perfectly in your mouth, allowing you to speak clearly without fear of slipping.
Improved Oral Health: Unlike bridges, dental implants do not require altering adjacent healthy teeth. More of your natural teeth are left intact, which improves oral health in the long term. Single implants also make it easier to access the space between teeth, which improves oral hygiene.
Durability: Dental implants are a permanent solution that can last a lifetime with proper care.
