How Dental Restorations Work
If you're missing one or multiple teeth but don't want to go the direction of dental bridges or dentures, you might be seriously considering dental implants.
Dental implants are considered a more natural tooth restoration than bridges or dentures because they don't just rest on the gum line. They anchor to the jawbone and replace your entire tooth, down to the root.
During your dental appointment with Dr. Kristen Harvey, we will determine if you are in good health and candidacy for this surgical procedure. There must be enough healthy bone structure to place the dental implants, but if your jawline has already started to recede from the gaps on your smile, we have procedures to restore the necessary bone.
What Do Dental Restorations Look Like?
Dental implants mimic your existing teeth more than any other dental prosthetic. The dental implant is comprised of a thin titanium screw that anchors to the jaw bone like a root. Once the implant has healed and is secured, your implant dentist will attach an abutment to the screw. This abutment allows us to place a dental crown over the dental implant.
Dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
