One of the many services offered at our practice is implant restorations. This is another excellent option used to replace single or multiple missing teeth. Dental implants are increasing in popularity due to their superior strength and durability.
What are dental implants?
A dental implant consists of two parts: a titanium post and a crown. The crown is anchored into place via a small titanium post that is surgically placed within the bone. Once the post is placed within the bone, the natural bone tissue of the body will integrate with the post securing it in place. This is known as osseointegration and is a key factor to the implant’s success. Once the implant has healed fully and has osseointegrated with the bone, the crown will be fabricated. The implant restoration will restore health, function, and aesthetics to your smile.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
- Superior strength: Implants are made of a titanium post and a porcelain crown that is stronger than your natural teeth.
- Durability: Dental implants can last up to twenty years or more. Excellent oral hygiene and proper care for your implant will ensure they last for years to come.
- Increased chewing efficiency
- Improved speech
- Implant crowns look and feel like natural teeth.
Am I a good candidate for dental implants?
To be a good candidate for dental implants, you must have healthy gums. Healthy gums are essential to the success of the implant. We work closely with our referring implant specialists to determine who is a good candidate to receive dental implants.
