A dental implant is a permanent tooth replacement that can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Dental implants are designed to last a lifetime, restoring the functionality, health, and beauty of your smile for life. The dental implant itself is a small post, typically created from titanium, that is surgically inserted in the jawbone in the place of the missing tooth. This post replaces the root of the missing tooth. To replace the missing crown (the portion of the tooth visible above the gums), we place a dental implant restoration on top of the post. This restoration may be a denture, a dental crown, or a dental bridge. Our dentist is happy to discuss your implant restoration options with you to ensure you choose the restoration best suited to your personal needs.
When in place, a dental implant can greatly improve your smile. The implant can restore your ability to speak and eat as normal, as well as enhance the beauty of your smile. Dental implants in Anaheim, California, are a good choice for replacing missing teeth because they do not require adjusting the neighboring healthy teeth, and they can last a lifetime with proper care.
