Dental implants are a stable solution for replacing teeth that you have lost due to decay, gum disease, or injury. A dental implant consists of a titanium post that is surgically positioned into the jaw, a custom designed titanium or ceramic abutment that supports the crown, and a ceramic, natural-looking crown. Implants match the appearance of your natural teeth and restore function and confidence.
Unlike bridges, implants don’t rely on the surrounding teeth for support and don’t add risk to neighboring teeth since they don’t require preparation for a bridge. Because they are implanted right into your jaw, they give your bone something to grow against and receive forces when you are chewing. This helps prevent the bone in that area from shrinking over time.
Dental implants can also be used in supporting multiple teeth, like a bridge, or even all of the teeth in an arch. Dr. LeVos has experience and training in all of these options.
