Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth without depending on existing teeth. It is the latest our profession has to offer in this arena and this method has the highest success rate if done by a properly trained dentist.
Dental Implants are the latest innovation our profession has to offer to replace missing teeth. Dental Implants can replace one or multiple teeth. They consist of three parts: The dental implant that replaces the root of the missing tooth, an intermediate part called an “Abutment”, and the crown that is fabricated to fit perfectly over the implant.
The surgery involved to place these implants has significantly improved that most if not all of our patients who received dental implants have reported minimal to no discomfort. Actually, most patients resumed working the day following the procedure.
To date, we know that dental implants, with proper routine maintenance, can last for at least 40 years. Caring for dental implants to ensure longevity involves the collaboration between our patients and our registered dental hygienist for adequate care.
Dental implants have several advantages compared to other alternative treatment options. Please consult with our office for a detailed description of the best treatment option for your condition. Dental Implants can also be used to support an existing complete denture. The difference in retention of a complete denture with and without dental implants is substantial.
