Do you need to have one, several or all of your teeth extracted? Are you missing parts of your smile due to missing teeth? At Seven Dental, our dental implants are an appealing and effective way for patients to permanently replace missing or extracted teeth. Our dental implants are designed to look, function and feel just like a natural tooth and can improve your appearance, speech and ability to eat properly.
When it comes to replacing missing teeth with dental implants, the entire procedure is performed over a few months. The implant (a tiny titanium post) is first surgically attached to the jawbone, creating a stable foundation for the prosthetic tooth/teeth. Depending upon your oral health and ultimate smile goals, single or multiple dental implants can be placed at once. Temporary crowns can also be placed so that you do not have a missing smile during healing.
After the dental implants have been installed, a process known as osseointegration will occur which causes the jaw bone to form around the implant itself. Once the implant has healed, the abutment can be placed. The abutment allows the prosthetic tooth/teeth to be attached to the implant. Dental crowns, bridges, partials and even dentures may be used to replace missing teeth depending upon your oral health and goals.
