An implant is a new tooth made of metal and porcelain that looks just like your natural tooth. It’s composed of two main parts: one part is the titanium implant body that takes the place of the missing root, and the second part is the tooth-colored crown that is cemented on top of the implant. With implant treatment, you can smile confidently knowing no one will ever suspect you have a replacement tooth.
In addition to tooth replacement, implants may be used to anchor dentures, especially lower dentures that tend to shift when you talk or chew. For patients with removable partial dentures, implants can replace missing teeth so you have a more natural-looking smile. In some cases, we can place several implants, commonly 4-6 implants in one arch, and permanently cement or screw retain a “fixed” prosthesis. In doing so, removal dentures can be a thing of the past!
Whether you need to replace a missing tooth or secure a set of dentures, dental implants may be right for you. Contact us today to get started on your free consultation!
