How do Dental Implants Work?
Missing a tooth (or several teeth)? A dental implant can give you a new one! First, the implant itself, which is a titanium screw called a post, is placed in your jawbone, mimicking the roots of your natural teeth. Next, the implant is topped with a crown, which will look and function much like a real tooth. The crown can last for over a decade and the implant itself may last a lifetime.
Single Tooth Implants
A dental implant can give you an elegant, effective option for replacing a single missing or damaged tooth. The implant, when topped with a crown, will fill the gap in your smile and can help restore your ability to bite and chew. Unlike the traditional approach of using a bridge to replace a missing tooth, an implant does not require any alterations to the teeth surrounding the gap.
If you have several missing teeth, or even a whole mouthful, we can use dental implants to support bridges. These are a series of crowns that have been cemented together to mimic a row of natural teeth. Bridges work the same way as single tooth implants, but can help with larger smile makeovers and restorations.
