Dental implants are a revolutionary and safe solution for the replacement of missing teeth. Dental implants provide a long-lasting alternative to dental bridges and dentures because that they are placed directly into the bone. Dental implants are usually made from surgical-grade titanium, which are inserted into the area where the roots of a tooth or teeth are missing. The posts serve as artificial roots, and once they fuse to the bone, they will be covered with a crown, bridge, or denture. Dental implants can help with chewing and speaking problems, and are designed to look natural and provide strong structural support. Implants are the closest replacement option to natural teeth.
The dental implant procedure involves three separate stages: implant insertion; osteointegration (the time period in which the implant post will fuse to the bone); and the final attachment of the abutment and prosthetic.
There are many different types of dental implants available, single tooth restoration, bridge or denture. Our doctors will go over all of your options with you on your first visit per your request. Call today (757) 430-9448 and ask for Laura
