Dental Implants is the latest our profession has to offer to replace missing teeth. Dental Implants can replace one or multiple teeth. They consist of two parts: The dental Implant that replaces the root of the missing tooth, and the crown that is fabricated to fit perfectly over the dental implant.
The surgery involved to place the dental implant 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 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 your restorative general dentist or 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.
