If you are missing one or more permanent teeth Dr. Brenner may recommend dental implants. Dental implants consist of a titanium implant post and a dental restoration. The implant post is surgically placed in your jaw where it acts as a replacement of tooth roots and provides a stable foundation for a new restoration. That restoration can be a dental crown, dental bridge or denture, which is attached to the implant abutment.
Dental implants have many advantages. They improve the appearance of your smile because they look like natural teeth. The restoration will match the shade of your natural teeth. Dental implants become a permanent part of your smile because the implant integrates with your jawbone. Dental implants are very durable and will last for many years, or even a lifetime if well cared for. Dental implants improve your long-term oral health and require no additional care other than your routine brushing and flossing. This stable restoration acts like your natural tooth and allows you to eat and speak with ease. It is the best treatment option for replacing missing teeth.
