Dr. X can restore a single tooth or multiple teeth using a dental implant. A dental implant utilizes an artificial root, made from surgical-grade titanium that Dr. X places in your mouth. Your jawbone bonds to the artificial root, creating a secure foundation for the attachment of a natural-looking porcelain crown or a bridge that is custom created for you. Some of the biggest advantages of implants are that they are more similar to your natural teeth, adjacent teeth do not have to be involved in the procedure, and implants help prevent shrinkage of your jawbone that can occur from tooth loss. Implants can be used to replace missing teeth in the back of the mouth, as well as the front. Few dentists actually perform both the artificial root placement and the porcelain restoration, but Dr. X is an expert in both procedures, giving him a greater level of precision in restoring your smile, while also offering you a more convenient treatment schedule.

A dental implant is one of the most permanent forms of restorative dentistry and can be used to restore a single tooth or several teeth. Dental implants involve the placement of a surgical grade titanium post by one of the doctor’s trusted specialists. As the bone bonds to the post, it forms a secure foundation for the attachment of a crown or a prosthetic tooth that is custom created for you. Implants are sometimes used instead of bridges to maintain the integrity of the teeth on either side of the missing teeth.
