Are you looking at multiple options when it comes to restoring your smile? If so, you are not alone. Did you know dental implants have long-term results and have been riding a wave of success for over 40 years? That is why our team at Kelner Periodontics LLC is happy to talk to you about dental implants and why they are so effective at restoring your smile.
Dental implants are permanent, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or all of the teeth. The dental implant post, which is a screw made of titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth by our periodontists. This replaces the missing tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. A period of healing allows the bone to begin to bond with the biocompatible post. Following this healing period, your regular dentist will place the dental implant restoration, or replacement tooth, which fits on top of the implant post. Depending on which teeth are missing and your personal dental needs, your implant restoration might be a dental crown, dental bridge, complete denture, or partial denture. Each dental implant restoration is custom made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically.
