Dental Implants are a long-lasting solution to repairing tooth loss. In fact, once placed, dental implants can mimic your natural teeth in both form and function—no one will ever know! Dental implants can be used to replace one or many teeth for most Dansville and Wayland dental patients.
Implants are anchored into the jawbone—simulating the root of a tooth, and act as the foundation for dental restorations. If you are missing only one tooth, or one tooth in a row, Dr. Vogler will likely place a porcelain crown over the implant, and design it to look exactly like your surrounding natural teeth. If many or all teeth are missing, implant supported dentures may be a better solution. This will anchor the denture in place, preventing slipping and rubbing.
Dental implants do require surgery to be placed. After the procedure, a period of healing will be required before subsequent restorations can be completed.
