What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants offer a comprehensive solution for tooth replacement. Unlike other restorations, they replace missing teeth from the root up, with the dental crown seamlessly mimicking the appearance and function of a natural tooth.

When considering what material to use for your dental implants, you’ll find two primary options: titanium and ceramic dental implants (zirconia). Both are biocompatible, so it’s essential to discuss these options with your dentist to determine the best fit for your specific needs.

We have a comprehensive range of dental implant solutions, including:

The Implant Procedure – What to Expect

The ideal candidate for this procedure is someone in good general and oral health. Adequate jawbone and gum tissue are essential to support the implant. Whether you’re replacing one tooth, several teeth, or a full mouth, this treatment can provide the ideal solution for your tooth loss.

Typically made from titanium, the post is surgically placed into your jawbone. Over several months, your jawbone will naturally fuse with the implant, creating a sturdy artificial tooth root for the final prosthetic tooth. Once the bone structure has fully healed around the new root, the prosthetic tooth (crown, bridge, or dentures) is attached, restoring both form and function to your smile.

A properly placed appliance can last a lifetime, offering the look and feel of natural, healthy teeth. However, just like natural teeth, there can be exceptions, and in rare cases, an implant may require repairs. At Excellence in Dentistry, we stand behind every procedure we perform to ensure you get a long-lasting and natural-looking smile.
