The gold standard in replacing missing teeth is with dental implants, as they preserve the surrounding structures and also preserving the levels of bone in the jaw. Implants offer a more permanent tooth replacement solution that helps patients restore function and appearance and is a great option to replace teeth that can not be saved due to tooth decay or gum disease.
A dental implant consists of 2 parts that permanently replaces both the visible part of the tooth crown and the root structures beneath the gum line. With a well planned surgical procedure, a biocompatible titanium implant is placed into thejaw bone to replace missing root, and a replacement artificial crown is secured to the implant. The implant will integrate with bone in approximately 3-6 months and remains securely fixed for the patient’s lifetime.
Dental Implants are often indistinguishable from natural teeth, except when seen on dental x-rays. They feel like natural teeth and function like natural teeth also. The color, shape, and size of each new tooth is matched to your own natural teeth. Speak to us about whether implants are for you.
