What Are Dental Implants?

An incomplete smile can rob you of all confidence. Fortunately, missing or severely damaged teeth no longer have to keep you from smiling or interacting with others. Our dental implants are an effective way to restore the aesthetic and function of your teeth.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots and caps that act as replacements for missing teeth. Dental implant posts are made of highly biocompatible titanium alloy, so they fuse well with your jawbone and pose very little risk of rejection or allergic reaction. Dental implant caps are made from durable porcelain that can be customized to blend in naturally with your other teeth.

Dental implants provide normal stability and function for your artificial teeth so that you can eat and speak normally. When crafted by a knowledgeable dentist like Dr. Anderson, dental implants can feel and look just like real teeth.

When Are Dental Implants Used?

Dental implants are used to restore a patient’s smile for both cosmetic and health reasons. Common uses are:

  • Replacing one or more teeth that have been knocked out due to injury.
  • Replacing one or more teeth that have fallen out due to damage or disease.
  • Replacing one or more teeth that are too damaged to remain in your mouth.
  • Keeping artificial tooth caps sturdy and well-supported.
  • Keeping dentures stable and preventing them from falling out.
  • Improving the aesthetic appearance of a smile.

Dr. Anderson can examine your teeth and make a recommendation about whether dental implants are a good option for you.

Types of Dental Implants

The types of dental implants we offer at our practice include:

  • Crowns – A crown is designed to replace a single tooth. It is customized for fit, comfort, and aesthetic so that it can look and feel natural alongside your other teeth.
  • Bridges – A bridge is designed to replace multiple missing adjacent teeth. They can be attached to just one implant post or multiple posts. Like crowns, they can also be customized.
  • Implants for denture support – Dentures can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire arch of teeth. Dentures can be fitted over implant posts for optimal stability and function.

Dr. Anderson can determine which type of dental implant would be best to restore your smile.
