Reasons to think about Dental Implants
When the root and the tooth are compromised, the very best fix are dental implants with the use of a ceramic crown. This process will give you the most natural look and functionality.

Exactly What is a Dental Implant?
A Dental Implant can be described as a little titanium screw that basically replaces the original root portion of the original tooth. Dental Implants are used for both the top and bottom of the jaw. Titanium is biocompatible which means it fuses naturally to the bone which gives it the security and stability it needs to last. The dental implant process can be used for missing single teeth or the whole mouth. Most dental implant patients are those who already have conventional dentures who are looking for a much more permanent and comfortable fix.
Dental Implant Procedures
Dental Implants are usually performed by a periodontist or an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Between the periodontist and general dentist, post will be implanted and designed to fit the patients all in the same office.
X-Rays will determine whether or not the jaw bone is able to hold the titanium post. It’s then when molds for the mouth are made with soft, pliable plastic compounds. The molds will indicate where the gaps are located and provide the best measurements for the implants. Dental Implant surgery usually requires one procedure with the use of a local anesthetic and sedative.
