Dental implants provide many benefits for patients with missing teeth. While traditional dentures still have their place in dentistry as an affordable restoration option, dental implants solve many complications associated with missing teeth that dentures can’t. Dental implants enhance the appeal of patients’ teeth while also improving health and function for natural-looking, beautiful smiles.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are comprised of three main parts: the root, the abutment, and the crown. The root is crafted using titanium, a unique material that bonds with the jawbone over time, in turn bolstering tissue strength.
The abutment connects to the implant root, creating an anchor for the crown. The crown is crafted using porcelain to imitate the natural tooth’s chewing surface and fit each respective patient to ensure a comfortable, durable dental restoration.
Why receive dental implants?
Dental implants can address several oral health complications. Patients missing a single tooth, up to an entire arch of teeth, can look forward to comprehensive services that address the root of associated dental issues. Dental implants can be used to support fixed dentures, single-implant crowns, or implant bridges.
The benefits of dental implants include:
- Improved Dental Function
- Prevention of Accelerated Jawbone Deterioration
- Increased Stability
- Unrestricted Diet
Receiving Dental Implants
At Foley and Ramsey Dental Center, we handle entire implant procedures in our office. Our on-site dental surgeon, Dr. David Phillips, places the titanium dental posts prior to Dr. Richard Battaglia or Dr. Kuo-Tung Hsu restoring patients’ smiles with crowns or other prosthetics.
We also offer the necessary prerequisite procedures, such as bone grafting, required to ensure patients have adequate jawbone density to receive dental implants.
Don’t let missing teeth or loose-fitting dentures hinder your quality of life.
