Dental Implants replace missing teeth and give the appearance of a natural, beautiful smile. Implants are an elegant alternative to bridges and partial or complete dentures. Dental implants feature titanium roots inserted in the jawbone to support the Implant. If a ptient is in good general health, has healthy gums, and has sufficient bone in their jaw to hold an implant, dental implants are an excellent tooth replacement option. Talk to one of our dentists at Lakeview Dental to find out if dental implants are the right solution for you.
How Dental Implantations are Performed
The process begins with your dentist examining your mouth, taking x-rays, and doing a 3D scan of your jam and teeth to determine the right course of action. Once an Implant is selected, the implant is placed into your jawbone beneath the gum tissue. As the tissue heals, the implant will bond with the bone and attach to the gum. During the second stage of implantation, an implant-supported crown will be attached to the implant, and your implant will feel and function like a natural tooth again.
