Dental implants are a permanent, natural-looking replacement for missing teeth. Because they can be used to replace just one tooth, several teeth, or all of the natural teeth, dental implants are an excellent tooth replacement option for many patients. The dental implant, which is created from titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone to replace the root of the missing tooth. A period of healing allows the bone to begin to bond with the titanium implant. Then, to replace the crown of the missing tooth, your talented dentists will place a dental implant restoration. Dental implant restorations are custom made to fit your smile and bite; depending on your individual dental needs, your implant restoration may be a:
- Full denture
- Partial denture
- Dental crown
- Dental bridge
Dr. Peacock, Dr. Ball, and Dr. Broadbent will ensure that your dental implant restoration fits your smile comfortably and aesthetically. When properly cared for, your dental implant can last a lifetime, effectively restoring the function, health, and appearance of your smile.
