Dental implants are a permanent solution to fill in any gaps and restore your smile to its former beauty.
Consisting of an artificial tooth root and a dental crown, Dental Implants are designed to be an exact match to your existing teeth in terms of shape, alignment, and color. In fact, your implant will look so natural that only you have to know that it’s an artificial replacement! To everyone else, it will look as if you were born with it.
What are Dental Implants?
Made from titanium, the dental implant mimics a tooth root and is a fixed, long-term solution for missing teeth. A dental crown is fixed to the implant to mimic the part of the natural tooth that is visible above the gum line. Not being reliant on neighboring teeth to keep it in place, unlike a dental bridge, the dental implant is self-supporting with no adjustment or alteration needed to any other teeth to keep it in place.
Who is a good candidate for Dental Implants?
Men and women who:
- Have one or more missing teeth and want a long-term solution for a replacement that is as close to their natural teeth as possible.
- Have a sufficient amount of strong bone for the implant to be placed in.
- Are not candidates for a fixed dental bridge due to the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth not being in good enough condition or strong enough to support the replacement tooth.
