If you have lost teeth, dental implants could be the ideal solution for your smile! Implants may be recommended to replace a single missing tooth, multiple missing teeth or a full arch of teeth, providing an effective and long-lasting solution for both your smile and your oral health.

What Are Dental Implants Made Of?


Implants consist of two main parts – the implant post and the implant restoration. The implant post is a small screw, typically made of titanium or another biocompatible material, which is surgically positioned within your jawbone at the precise location of the missing tooth. This post serves as a replacement for your natural tooth root, performing the same vital functions in ensuring the stability and health of your supporting bone and providing a stable foundation for your smile.

How Dental Implants Restore Your Smile


The implant restoration replaces the crown of the missing tooth. It is securely fixed atop the implant post to complete your treatment and fully restore the appearance and function of your smile. Depending on how many teeth you are replacing, this restoration could be a dental crown, a dental bridge or even a complete or partial denture. Your restoration is custom-made to ensure both comfort and aesthetics.

Implants offer many benefits, such as restoring the health, function and appearance of your smile, as well as giving you a final result that looks, feels and functions like your natural teeth. When properly cared for, implants can last a lifetime, making them a sound investment in your oral health and overall wellbeing.

If you are missing teeth, you are a candidate for implant dentistry. However, if you have tooth decay, gum disease or another condition you will need to receive treatment for that issue before you can receive a dental implant. Our experienced periodontist will evaluate your oral health to determine if additional care is necessary and create your treatment plan.
