Dental implants at our Burlington dental office are used to replace the root of missing teeth. The implants are made of titanium and are placed in the jaw bone during a surgical procedure and support artificial teeth replacements including crowns, bridges and dentures. Dental implants are a very popular tooth replacement option. When a tooth is missing, the spaces between your teeth may change and it can affect the way you eat and chew and it can also affect the physical appearance of your smile.
After the implant is placed in the jaw bone it has to integrate with the bone. The implant then is used to support a variety of restorations ranging from dental crowns, to multiple dental bridges or dentures.
To find out if you are a good candidate for Dental implants you need to consult your Dentist. Your Dentist will consider multiple factors to determine if Dental implants are the right choice for replacing your missing teeth.
With the advancement of modern dentistry, we are able to replace several or all of a patient’s teeth by attaching dental implants to a variety of prosthetic tooth replacements.
