Implant Placement and Implant Restoration
A dental implant crown can restore a single missing tooth, dental implants function much like natural teeth, and boast a reputation as the longest-lasting teeth replacement option available today. Single dental implants can be used to replace one missing tooth. After the placement of the implant, the healing process begins, in which the jawbone fuses to the titanium surface of the post. This process, called osseointegration, keeps your dental implant secured within the jaw so you are able to eat and chew. Once the healing period is over, a permanent implant-supported crown will be attached to your implant to fill in the gap left behind by your missing tooth.
