Dental implants are a great way to replace a single missing tooth or your entire smile. Dental implants are a surgical treatment designed to restore the whole of your tooth, including the tooth root and the upper crown. Completed over the course of a number of months, your dental implant treatment will result in a new smile that will look beautiful and function properly. At The Art of Dentistry, Dr. Williams will generally utilize the following steps to complete your dental implants:
- First, we begin by surgically placing your new tooth root, a small metal post, into your jawbone.
- Your jawbone and gums are then allowed to heal, allowing time for the metal post to fuse with the natural tissues of your original bone structure. This promotes durability and strength.
- A connector post, called an abutment, is placed on the metal post to help hold your new tooth in place.
- Your final restoration, a custom-crafted crown, bridge, or denture, is permanently placed in your new smile.
