Dental implants are a type of prosthetic to give you a long-term solution for missing teeth. Implants can be used to replace anywhere from one tooth to an entire arch of teeth, but each implant will consist of two main parts: an implant post and an implant restoration.
An implant post is a small titanium screw that replaces the root of the missing tooth. It is surgically placed into the jawbone, where it can integrate with the bone tissue. Not only does the implant post act as a strong foundation for the restoration, but it stimulates your supporting bone — just like a natural tooth root would — to help keep your bones strong and healthy.
If an implant post replaces the root of a tooth, an implant restoration replaces the cap of the tooth. The implant restoration completes the implant, protecting your teeth and improving your smile. Depending on the needs of your smile, the dental restoration could be a single crown, a dental bridge or even a full denture. Whatever your smile needs, our dentist can design a dental implant restoration that works for you!
If you do find yourself with missing teeth, it is important to replace them as soon as you can. Missing teeth do more than just interrupt your smile; they can lead to bone loss or misalignment of your remaining teeth. That is why dental implants are so helpful. They can replace the look of your smile while also supporting the full function of your original teeth, and with proper oral care, these implants can last a lifetime.
