Dental implants are an excellent choice for replacing one or more missing teeth. Because a dental implant replaces both the crown and root of the missing tooth, the dental implant looks and feels very similar to your natural teeth. The dental implant is surgically placed in the jawbone, replacing the root of the tooth and providing a stable foundation for the dental implant restoration. After a period of healing, your talented dentist, Dr. Boettcher, will place the dental implant restoration. Each dental implant restoration is custom made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically. Depending on your specific dental needs, your dental implant restoration may be:
- A dental crown
- A full denture
- A dental bridge
- A partial denture
Dental implants are permanent and non-removable. They are exceptionally secure, and when properly cared for, they can last a lifetime. Dental implants can improve your smile by restoring lost facial volume, preventing the remaining natural teeth from shifting in the mouth, and improving your ability to eat, speak, and chew as normal.
