One of the excellent qualities of dental implants is that there are options available to replace a single missing tooth, multiple missing teeth and even complete arches of missing teeth. This is made possible by the variety of restorations that can be mounted to your implant. You could receive a crown, a bridge, or complete or partial dentures.
Our dentist will fit your restoration to the implant posts, which are titanium screws that are surgically placed into your jawbone and act as an anchor in your mouth. Once the placement surgery has been completed, you will need to give your mouth a while to rest and heal, giving the bone time to begin bonding with the biocompatible post.
Once you have completed this process and had your custom-made restoration mounted to your posts, your smile can be returned to its optimal health, function and appearance.
