One of the most natural looking options in restorative dentistry is the dental implant. Whether one or many teeth need replacement, dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. Unlike dentures that must be removed or bridges that adhere to other teeth, implants are connected to your own jaw, making them as close to natural teeth as possible. At Meridian Campus Family Dental, we are happy to offer this beautiful option in smile restoration to our patients.
Dental implants are completed using a titanium post that is secured into the jaw bone. The post serves as the “root” of the new tooth and bonds with the bone, creating a fused connection. Once the post is secure, a natural looking crown is adhered to the post, creating your new tooth. You now have a tooth that looks and functions just like your natural teeth – you can eat the foods you love and give the world a big grin again.
