About Dental Implants
Often incorporated into full mouth reconstructions, dental implants are tiny, titanium posts that act as artificial tooth roots for prosthetic teeth. The sturdy posts are surgically implanted into the jawbone by an oral surgeon, after which the bone and implants fuse together. Once healing has taken place, a custom-crafted restoration will be connected to the titanium post via an abutment. A dental crown, dental bridge, or full set of dentures can be attached to the implant to restore health, function, and aesthetics to the mouth. Dental implants are ideal for patients who are missing one or more teeth or who have severely damaged teeth that require extraction. They are also excellent for patients whose removable dentures don't fit properly or comfortably.
Because dental implant surgery is one of the more invasive dental procedures available and the most permanent solution to missing teeth, you will undergo a comprehensive oral examination in order to ensure that the treatment is best suited to your case.
