What are dental implants?

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 bone at the site of the missing tooth. This replaces the missing tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. Our skilled dentists work closely with an oral surgeon or implant specialist during this period to make certain that we achieve the best possible results. After a period of healing, Dr. Parham will place the dental implant restoration, 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.
