If a tooth is missing, it is important to replace it in order to prevent other teeth from shifting and to avoid deterioration of the jawbone. Dental implants are an excellent, permanent choice for replacing missing teeth because they replace both the root and crown of the tooth. A titanium post is surgically placed in the jawbone to provide a stable foundation for the artificial tooth. Following a period of healing, your skilled dentist, Dr. Sims, will place the dental implant restoration. Depending on your individual dental needs, your custom dental implant restoration may be a:
- Full or partial denture
- Dental crown
- Dental bridge
Dr. Sims and her dental team will ensure that your dental restoration fits your smile comfortably and aesthetically.
