Dental implants* are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures. Implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances.
Most often used in single tooth replacement cases, an implant is placed where the tooth’s root was. After a period of healing, a special post (called an abutment) and a permanent crown will be placed. Implants provide stability and longevity, while restoring natural form and function. Implants can also be used in situations where the replacement of multiple teeth is indicated as well.
Dental implants are strong and durable and will last many years. On occasion, they will have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear.
Reasons for dental implants:
Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
Restore a patient’s confident smile.
Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
Restore or enhance facial tissues.
Support a bridge or denture, making it more secure and comfortable.
