What are dental implants?

A dental implant is a permanent replacement for a missing tooth. Dental implants are very versatile and can be used for all of your tooth replacement needs, whether you are missing just one tooth, a few teeth, or all of your natural teeth. The implant itself is a small screw-like post that is surgically placed in the jawbone. Following a period of healing, our dentist attaches a dental implant restoration on top of the post to fully restore your smile. Based on which teeth are missing, we may recommend a dental crown, a dental bridge, a complete denture, or a partial denture as your implant restoration. We will make certain that your implant restoration looks natural and fits comfortably.

Do I need dental implants?

Dr. Scott Lindsay may recommend dental implants to help you smile, eat, and speak with confidence. Because implants replace both the root and crown of the missing tooth, they function, look, and feel very similar to your natural teeth. With implants, you will be able to chew and eat normally without pain, speak properly without the hassle of missing teeth or shifting restorations, and enjoy a complete, beautiful smile.
