Whether you are missing just one tooth, all of your teeth, or somewhere in between, dental implants are an excellent choice for tooth replacement. Dental implants are used to permanently replace missing teeth, and when cared for properly, they can last a lifetime. The implant, a post made of titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone to replace the root of the missing tooth and provide a stable foundation for the dental implant restoration. Following a period of healing, your talented dentists will place the dental implant restoration, which completes the implant to restore the function and appearance of your smile. Depending on your individual dental needs, your dental implant restoration may be a:
- Custom dental bridge
- Custom dental crown
- Custom full denture
- Custom partial denture
The type of dental implant restoration depends largely on how many teeth are missing; Dr. Findlay and Dr. Baldassari-Cruz will help you determine which of our implant restorations will best meet your specific needs. Your dental implants will look, feel, and function just like natural teeth.
