Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth, which makes them an attractive option for many patients seeking dental prosthetics. An implant has two parts: the root and the crown. It's attractive for many reasons, including: the prevention of jawbone loss, lip and facial structure support, clearer speech, the maintenance of a regular diet, long-lasting comfort and function.
When a tooth or several teeth are missing, a dental implant with a crown or bridge is an excellent treatment for replacing it.
Depending on the situation, placing an implant involves several phases, and treatment times can vary widely. First, we determine if an implant is right for you. We discuss your health history and treatment goals and perform a comprehensive examination to check the health of your gums and jawbone. We determine if you need any additional procedures, such as bone grafting or gum surgery.
Although each case will be different, placing an implant generally involves two phases: surgically placing the implant and restoring the implant with a crown or bridge.
