Implants are the most ideal way to replace missing teeth. A missing tooth can affect more than just your self-confidence. In some cases speech, chewing and even ones appearance can be altered.
Implants require the same care as your natural teeth. Unlike dentures, implants are not removed for cleaning and no adhesives are needed. With good oral hygiene and regular visits to your dentist implants can be a lifelong restoration.
The implant itself is made of titanium and acts as the “root” of the tooth and the base for the final restoration. Implants can be placed in both the upper and lower jaw to replace a single tooth, several teeth or be used as an anchor for a full denture. Patients of all ages have benefited from the placement of dental implants.
At Eastpark Dental, we use state of the art 3D imaging to insure optimal implant positioning at the time of surgery. This helps to maximize the bone support and provide a strong foundation for the permanent restoration. The following video gives an overview of a typical implant case.
