Are you missing a tooth and wish you could eat and smile like you used to? Do you have a tooth that’s gone bad and are thinking of pulling it? Dental implants can restore esthetics and function if a tooth is extracted or missing. A titanium screw called an implant is placed where the tooth root used to be, then allowed to integrate with the bone. After a period of healing, the implant is then attached with an abutment (connector) to the replacement tooth (called a crown). Some people want to replace missing teeth soon after they are extracted, others wait and often time years later they can still be replaced with implants. Also, people who wear loose dentures can gain stability by connecting a denture to implant attachments.
Implants can replace a single tooth or multiple teeth depending on your goals. Schedule your free implant consultation today to see if you are a candidate for implants.
