A dental implant is a permanent tooth replacement that looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth, and they’re available at Allen Park Dental Care. Are they worth the investment? Absolutely!
The actual dental implant material is usually titanium. A post is surgically placed into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. The post meshes with the bone to provide a stable foundation. This is critical because the root replacement post helps prevent jaw bone deterioration that often occurs after a tooth has been lost.
When the implant has meshed securely with the bone (it can take up to six months), a smaller post is attached. This post extends above the gum line. The artificial tooth (crown) is then attached. Same day implants are available for some patients that fit the criteria. Schedule a consultation with Drs. Szalai about your situation.
The dental implants available at Allen Park Dental Care are extremely versatile and can be used in a variety of configurations. One dental implant can replace one missing tooth. A series of implants can anchor a dental bridge, and even dentures.
