A Dental Implant is known as one of the most permanent dental restorations available in dentistry, and the restorations that sit on them are life-like and look great. Dental Implants are a fixed solution, they are strong and will last the life of the patient if proper care is taken.
What is a Dental Implant?
Dental Implants are metal posts (roots) that are surgically implanted into the jaw bone to replace a missing tooth, or teeth. Once the location of the implant has had adequate time to heal, the final restoration is placed on top of the dental implant.
What does the final result look like?
The final restoration might be a porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or full metal crown that serves to restore the chewing function to that area. Patients needing dentures or a partial denture might qualify for Denture Implants which are strong and make your restoration fixed, so you don't have to worry about the denture slipping around. These restorations look realistic and beautiful.
Dental Implants take time to place and most likely will take several appointments to complete the process. Healing times vary and treatment plans are created on a case by case basis. If you are interested in learning more about Dental Implants, you may contact us with any questions at 281-492-6064.
