What Is a Dental Implant?
If you envision a complete tooth, the dental implant is the equivalent of the tooth root. This artificial "tooth root" is a screw-like post that is surgically placed in the jawbone. To recreate an entire tooth, an artificial tooth (often called a "crown") is attached to the implant using a connector piece called an abutment.
In addition to single teeth, dental implants can also support dental bridges and dentures.
Dr. Nguyen is experienced in working with both titanium and zirconia implants, which allows her to offer the very best implant to meet each patient's unique needs.
Replacing Missing Teeth
IMPLANTS SUPPORT A VARIETY OF RESTORATIONS
When paired with restorations, dental implants can restore your smile and give you a functional bite. Most people discover it's almost as if they never lost their natural teeth.
A single implant and custom dental crown replace a tooth from top to root. A major advantage of this method is that nearby teeth do not need to be altered to support a replacement tooth.
Row of Teeth
If you are missing a row of teeth, an implant-supported bridge will restore your smile without having to reshape two otherwise healthy teeth to support both ends of a dental bridge.
Multiple implants can be used to support an entire denture. Once secured to implants, these dentures will never slip and the implants will help avoid the bone loss that occurs with missing teeth.
