Do you have one or more missing teeth?
Missing teeth can make it uncomfortable to chew and eat properly and can even cause remaining teeth to shift or drift. This can change the shape of your face or make you look older than your years.
Dental implants offer a natural-looking, durable, strong and secure solution for replacing missing teeth. They can provide a solid foundation to restore functionality and rebuild a smile.
A dental implant consists of two main parts:
The body – Fabricated from titanium, the body serves as a replacement root for the missing tooth. The implant is surgically placed into the bone and a period of time is allowed for healing.
The crown – A crown is fabricated to fit onto the body of the implant by either being cemented or screwed securely into place.
