A missing tooth, or teeth, will have more than just an aesthetic impact on your smile. When patients put off replacing a tooth, it can often cause their smile to shift out of alignment or their surrounding jawbone to deteriorate. To completely restore the function, beauty and health of your smile, whether you are missing a single tooth, multiple teeth or an entire row of teeth, our dentist may recommend dental implants.
Dental implants consist of two parts. Placing your implant post is the first step. Made of titanium or another biocompatible material, this small screw is placed at the site of your missing tooth, and it is designed to hold your restoration in place. After placement, there is a period of healing required to allow the post to integrate with your natural bone. Once you have fully healed from placement, our dentist will attach your custom-made dental restoration. Depending on your specific needs, this restoration may be a single implant crown, an implant-supported bridge or even a partial or full implant-supported denture. Our team will design your restoration specifically to fit you smile comfortably, securely and beautifully so your results can look, feel and function like natural teeth.
When cared for properly, your dental implant can last for the rest of your life. If you would like to learn more about dental implants in Fresno, call or visit our office today.
