Dental implants are prosthetic teeth designed to replace missing teeth after they have been lost or removed from your mouth. When you receive a dental implant to replace your missing teeth, there will be two main parts to your treatment, the implant post and the implant restoration. The implant post replaces the tooth root and helps to keep your new tooth or teeth stable in your mouth. Implant restorations replace the crowns of your missing teeth to complete your treatment and fully restore your smile and your ability to chew and speak normally.
Depending on the number of missing teeth and your oral health needs, your implant restoration may be a single crown, a dental bridge, or a complete or partial denture. When you visit our office for your consultation, our dentist will discuss your options with you to determine which type of restoration is right for your needs. Your restoration will be custom made to provide you with a natural-looking and lost-lasting result for your oral health and smile. Ultimately, your completed restoration should look, feel and function just like your original teeth.
