How do dental implants work?
Dental implants are a popular method for tooth replacement because they are reliable and look just like your natural teeth. We surgically place dental implants in your jawbone and they integrate with your natural bone. We call this process osseointegration. Surgeons use biocompatible metals to promote osseointegration.
Once your implant and your bone fully integrate, we can place your dental crown on top of your dental implant to complete your smile and your chewing surface. Your crown is one of a kind! All of our crowns are custom made for our patients and blend in with their natural teeth seamlessly.
Are You Right For Dental Implants?
Most modern dentists recommend dental implants as the first line of treatment for a missing tooth, but not everyone qualifies for dental implants. In some rare instances, if you take certain medications or have certain medical conditions, dental implants may not work for you. Dr. Robertson will keep you informed and answer your questions every step of the way. At our office, we like to educate our patients as well as provide them with a number of options.
Dental implants can solve many problems for patients. Prosthetics can be awkward and uncomfortable. Dental implants most closely resemble your natural teeth in both appearances as well as function.
