A Dental Implant (also known as an Implant Supported Crown) is a long-lasting and effective way to replace a missing tooth. They look and feel natural. We offer Dental Implants (Implant Supported Crowns) for patients who have damaged a tooth or lost multiple teeth.
How do Dental Implants (Implant Supported Crowns) work?
An artificial tooth root made of surgical grade titanium is implanted into the jaw to support the replacement tooth. Then, a mold of your teeth is taken and sent to a laboratory, where the impression will be used to build a custom made crown specifically designed for your implant. When you return to the office, we will apply the new crown to the screw and make sure it fits snugly into your teeth.
Advantages of Dental Implants (Implant Supported Crowns):
- Look and function like original teeth.
- Surrounding teeth are not compromised to sustain a bridge.
- Conserves the bone and prevents the sagging of facial and dental muscles.
- No extra care is required other than the basic dental care, such as flossing.
