Dental Implants – Best Choice
Dental Implants are the Best Choice for Missing Teeth
A dental implant is designed to replace missing teeth, and is composed of three parts: the titanium implant that fuses to the jawbone; the abutment, which fits over the portion of the implant that sticks up from the gum line; and the crown or bridge, which is created by Dr. Ted and fitted onto the abutment.
After years of advances in dentistry, dental implants have become the treatment of choice for our patients. Dental implants look and function just like your natural teeth. Implants can replace one tooth or all of your teeth. For people that have severe periodontal disease, the choice is limited to dentures or dental implants. The important things to know about dental implants are that they are rooted into the bone, and they are self-sufficient, meaning they do not impact healthy or adjacent teeth. Unlike dentures or bridges, dental implants don’t move or shift, and they can last a life time if taken care of with proper dental cleanings and home care.
