Dental Implants are tooth replacement options. They are composed of three parts. The implant itself, the abutment which is placed or screwed into the implant base, and then the crown which is cemented or screwed into the abutment. We are proud to offer dental implants for our patients to help replace their missing teeth.
Dental implants are placed to improve a patient’s function, smile and usually their self esteem. Having missing or bad teeth can make it difficult to chew and eat. Dental implants help improve oral health, making it easier to eat than with removable prosthetics. Your speech can also be improved. Dental implants are also more comfortable because they are made to be permanent.
When done correctly, and with proper care, dental implants can last a patient’s whole life. It is still important to brush your teeth, floss, and use mouthwash when you have implants. Patients still need routine dental checkups to keep their implants healthy.
