Dental implants are a restorative and cosmetic dentistry solution that combines a prosthetic tooth with an artificial tooth root. Implants are one of the many ways to replace missing teeth, eliminating stress on surrounding teeth, as long as you are a candidate. We work alongside your Implantologist to restore your dental implant with a crown, bridge, or denture.
Implants are made up of an artificial root that is formed from a titanium post and is inserted into the jaw bone in the location of a missing tooth. After a few months of healing from the placement of the post, a prosthetic tooth made of porcelain or zirconia, known as a crown, is then attached by an abutment to the post. The same process is done for an implant bridge or denture, except more than one implant post would be needed for these.
