Dental Implants, as part of restorative dentistry, are used to make rebuilding and restoring your missing teeth easier. Implants are titanium screws that get inserted into the jawbone to act as an artificial root for crowns, bridges or dentures. While dental implants may seem like an aggressive treatment, they are the closest in function, protection and safety to natural teeth. They provide a strong, durable and solid foundation to the artificial tooth, they lessen your susceptibility to gum disease and they protect your jaws from bone loss.
Prior to your treatment, our Bayview Village dentist will perform a full assessment of your oral and general health, to determine if you are a candidate for dental implant treatment or not. Certain chronic diseases, heavy smoking and alcohol abuse may contraindicate dental implant treatment. However, at Bayview Village Dental Associates, we will do our best to come up with the most suitable dental treatment plan for you, so that you can have, maintain and enjoy a beautiful and healthy lifelong smile.
