Your teeth play an important role in your health and quality of life. Aside from giving you a beautiful smile, teeth also make it possible for you to eat and speak, and work to stimulate your supporting jawbone so that it remains healthy. Missing teeth have an immediate impact on your appearance and oral function, and if your tooth remains missing long enough it will also result in your supporting jawbone deteriorating and “shrinking,” causing your remaining teeth to become unstable. All this makes it critical that you replace any missing teeth as soon as possible to regain normal oral health and function and prevent other problems from occurring.
While there are several options to replace missing teeth available, dental implants stand as the optimal solution for both the aesthetics and the health of your smile. Unlike other tooth replacement options, implants replace the tooth roots, which allows them to perform the same functions as your original tooth in keeping your jawbone healthy. This promotes better oral health and function and gives you a better long-term result.
Dental implants consist of two main parts – the implant post and the implant restoration. The implant post is surgically inserted into your jawbone to replace the tooth root. After you have recovered from this procedure, our dentists will create your implant restoration. This restoration replaces the crown or crowns of your teeth, capping the post to complete your treatment and fully restore your smile. Depending on how many teeth you are replacing, your implant restoration could be a dental crown, dental bridge or denture.
