Implants are an excellent, long-term solution for missing teeth.
During this procedure, a surgical grade titanium post is inserted into the bone that normally surrounds teeth. Time is allowed to pass in order for the implant to fuse to the surrounding bone. This process is called osseointegration. Once this is accomplished, a crown is fabricated to attach to the titanium post and replace the missing tooth.
Implants have many advantages over other tooth replacement options.
- With implants, the neighboring teeth do not need to be altered in any way in order to replace the missing teeth.
- If you wear dentures, clasps or adhesives are not required to keep your denture or partial denture in place.
- With proper treatment planning, implants have a high success rate!
