Dental implants are a long-lasting and highly stable tooth replacement option. They look, feel and function exactly like your original tooth, making them the ideal choice for replacing missing teeth and restoring your smile, oral function and oral health.
Implants consist of two main parts – an implant post and an implant restoration. The implant post is a small screw, usually made of titanium or another biologically compatible material. The screw is surgically inserted into your jawbone to take the place of the missing tooth root and provide a stable foundation for your teeth. The implant restoration replaces the crown or crowns of the tooth, capping the implant to complete your treatment and restore your smile. Depending on the number of teeth you are replacing, your restoration may be a single dental crown, a dental bridge, or a complete or partial denture.
Your dental implant is intended to last for a lifetime, and when properly cared for with good oral hygiene and regular dental visits will give you back a confident smile for years to come.
