An implant is another, better, option to replace a missing tooth or several missing teeth. An implant restoration is a new tooth in the same position as the tooth that was lost, and can look and feel just like your natural tooth. Your implant is composed of two parts that mimic a tooth’s root and crown. Once the implant has healed in place, we attach a crown to it to replace the top, biting part of your tooth.
Implants can be used in a variety of combinations to secure partial or complete dentures. Implants combined with the appropriate prosthetic combination can increase a patients ability to taste food and drinks, chew, talk while creating a more natural smile.
