Once the dental implant has been placed and is stable, Dr. Miller, Dr. Hinds and Dr. Green can add a lifelike tooth. This is usually a dental crown that fits over the top of the implant and restores the appearance and function of your smile. Dental bridges can be used as implant restorations as well, based on your specific needs. Implants may also serve as anchors to secure partial or full dentures.
Dental implants have several benefits that make them a great choice for replacing missing teeth. Implants are a more favorable approach than bridgework since they do not require grinding down the adjacent teeth for support. With proper care dental implants can last a lifetime, and because they replace both the root and crown of the missing tooth, they are exceptionally similar to your natural teeth in how they look and feel.
