Permanent Tooth Restoration
Dental implants are the gold standard of restoration for missing or failing teeth.
A dental implant is a screw-like device that looks and functions like a natural tooth. It can be placed in the upper or lower part of the mouth and stay with you for a lifetime. When teeth have rotted beyond restoration or root canals and crowns have continued to fail, dental implants are a great solution. They can even be placed over dentures to create a more hassle-free experience.
There are actually three parts to what is collectively known as a dental implant:
Implant - replaces root of tooth; screws into place
Abutment - connects implant to crown
Crown - replaces visible portion of tooth; placed by your general dentist
