Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth, including the portion of the tooth commonly referred to as the root (the area of the tooth below the gum). A strong titanium post is inserted into the jawbone in preparation for a replacement tooth to be attached where your natural tooth once was. Dental implant restorations look and function like natural teeth, making them the best treatment option, and long-term solution for teeth replacement.
Dental implant surgery is one of the safest and most predictable procedures in the dental world. Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth down to the root when teeth are missing or unable to support and retain a dental prosthesis (like a crown or dentures). Dental implants allow you to continue living life unhindered, despite your missing tooth. You’ll be able to laugh, talk, chew, kiss, and smile as if you had every single natural tooth. Implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth, and Dr. Angart and his team will make sure you’re as comfortable and confident as possible throughout the process.
Dental implants can be thought of as artificial tooth roots that look similar to screws. This root-like titanium post is inserted into the jawbone in preparation for a replacement tooth to be attached where your natural tooth once was. When the dental implants are placed in your jawbone, they bond with your natural bone and become a sturdy base for supporting one or more artificial teeth.
Another part of the implant is the connector, also called an abutment, which is placed on top of the implant to secure and support the artificial tooth, or crowns. The crowns are made specifically for your mouth—to match your natural teeth shape and color and fit seamlessly inside your mouth.
Dental implants are the strongest options available to hold and support replacement teeth in a way that feels natural and comfortable.
It is incredibly rare for a dental implant to become loose or problematic. But if you experience an injury or another event that causes failure, you should come in right away to get it examined. We’ll make sure that the implant is restored and the rest of your teeth are not damaged.
