While there are many options when it comes to replacing missing teeth, Dr. Stephen M. Dang and our team are proud to offer our patients a permanent solution to tooth loss. Dental implants are the only dental restoration that can replace both the roots and crowns of missing teeth, providing complete tooth replacement. At Main Street Dental, we offer the following dental implant options:
A dental implant is a screw, typically made of titanium, that is attached to a dental restoration, such as a dental crown, bridge, or denture. It is designed to mimic the root and crown of a tooth so that your restoration looks and feels completely natural.
Placing an implant device occurs in two stages. First, Dr. Stephen M. Dang surgically places the implant post in the jawbone. This not only provides stability but also prevents the negative side effects of tooth loss that other restorations experience, such as a shrunken jawbone that can cause the restoration to become ill-fitting. The treatment area is then allowed to heal for several weeks while the implant post integrates with the surrounding bone.
When the mouth is ready, Dr. Stephen M. Dang will place your dental restoration to complete the dental implant. Depending on how many teeth need replacing, your implant can range from a single crown to a full arch of synthetic teeth.
