Dental implants are independent tooth replacements that do not rely on adjacent teeth for support. Instead, each one functions as a prosthetic tooth. An implant looks similar to a screw made from titanium. It is placed directly into the bone, and functions similar to a real tooth. In fact, the body typically develops new bone around the implant, which secures it firmly into place.
Once your implant is installed, our dentists will place an abutment over it, which can then support a fixed prosthesis such as:
- Individual porcelain crown, for single tooth replacement
- A fixed bridge, to replace several teeth at one time
- Removable or fixed implant denture
A face without teeth can sag and appear sunken and sad. Implants allow you to maintain the natural shape of your face and smile. A dental implant restores a lost tooth so that it looks, feels, fits and functions like a natural tooth. Implants will never loosen or fall out when you talk, eat, smile, yawn, laugh or kiss.
Implants are more like natural healthy teeth. People often refer to implants as “fake teeth” but the fact is it’s almost impossible to tell the difference between an implant and a real tooth.
The dental implants procedure is safe and straight forward.
