What Are Dental Implants?
Patients who are missing one or more teeth could benefit from dental implants. With implant dentistry, a dental implants dentist places a small titanium post into the jawbone in place of a missing tooth. The titanium is biocompatible, which means that over a period of a few months, it fuses with the bone. This allows the post to function as your new tooth root, so you have a solid foundation for a restoration that we’ll then place on top.
Dental Implant Restorations
What exactly is the dental implant restoration? That depends on the number of teeth you’re replacing with implants. At your consultation, Dr. Lambeth will go over the best restoration option for your situation and lifestyle.
- Dental Crown – the best option for a single-tooth replacement; our crowns look and feel just like your surrounding natural teeth
- Dental Bridge – great for one missing tooth or a couple in a row; a bridge connects to a crown on either side and has false teeth in place of the missing ones to “bridge the gap” left behind
- Dentures – patients missing most or all teeth in an arch can use dental implants for denture stabilization; no more slipping, clicking, or using messy adhesives
