Dental Implants at Sandpiper Dental
In the case that you have lost one or more teeth, we may recommend dental implants to restore your smile.
What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant provides a permanent, natural-feeling, and natural-looking replacement for your missing teeth. The implant itself is a small, screw-like post that is implanted directly into your jawbone. This provides a replacement for the lost tooth root, giving your new tooth a strong foundation. After a period of healing, which usually lasts a couple of months, our dentists will place the implant restoration on top of the post. This replaces the crown of the missing tooth; based on how many teeth are missing, we may suggest a dental crown, a partial denture, a dental bridge, or a complete denture as your implant restoration.
Restoring Your Smile
When in place, your dental implant can restore the health, function, and appearance of your smile. You will be able to once again chew, speak, and eat as normal, and your smile’s beauty will be greatly enhanced. For a restoration that is stable, lasting, and beautiful, dental implants are a great choice.
