Dental implants are custom-designed restorations that replace one or more missing more missing teeth in your smile. They work as prosthetic teeth and are a natural and long-lasting solution for the empty spaces in your smile. Because they are created to be cosmetic, functional and durable, you can enjoy the results of an implant for many years as long as you maintain healthy hygiene habits just as you would for your original teeth.

A dental implant is unique amongst other restorations because it replaces both the visible section of your tooth, otherwise known as a crown, and the root of your tooth. This gives you a replacement tooth that looks, feels and functions as your natural tooth.

Dental implants consist of two parts. The first part is known as the dental post, and it replaces your tooth’s root. Once your implant post has been carefully and expertly placed, integrating the post with your jawbone and giving you time to heal, our dentist will meet with you to discuss what type of restoration you would like to complete your treatment. This is the second part of your dental implant. If you are only replacing one tooth, you will only need a single crown. If you are replacing multiple teeth, however, you have many different choices, including a dental bridge or a complete or partial denture. Our dentist will explain the benefits of each choice to you.
