Missing teeth are effectively replaced with dental implants that recreate the look, feel, and function of your natural teeth.
With dental implants, a titanium post is implanted in the jawbone to serve as a sturdy foundation, much like the root of a tooth. Titanium dental implants are used because titanium has been found effective and safe, a biologically compatible material. This post fuses to the jawbone over the next several months creating a secure base for the abutment and crown. The abutment fits into the post and offers a stable base for the crown which is matched in shade and shape to the surrounding teeth and appears to be growing from the gum line just like your natural teeth.
Who Should Consider Dental Implants for Missing Teeth?
Due to the fact that any instance of missing teeth will begin the process of bone loss, dental implants provide a stimulus for the bone, thereby preserving bone long term. If you have already experienced bone loss due to previous medical conditions, injuries, or lengthy denture wear, you may require a bone graft before undergoing the procedure for dental implants.
