Dental Implant Crowns

Dental implants are metal cylinders made of titanium surgically placed in the jawbone where teeth are missing. Dental implants replace the roots of missing teeth and support single implant crown, implant crown bridges, and dentures. State-of-the-art technology makes it possible for these implant-supported replacement teeth to look, feel, and function like natural teeth. There are many options to consider and we work with your oral surgeon and periodontist to help you make the best treatment option. 


Do I Need Dental Implants?

There are a variety of circumstances that may lead to missing teeth and the need for dental implants. For example: 

  • If diagnosed and treated early, most cavities and decayed teeth can be treated simply with a filling, but in some cases the decay is so extensive the tooth cannot be restored and must be extracted. 
  • Patients with a cleft lip often experience a missing tooth or teeth in a position corresponding to the cleft. 
  • The forces generated by a patient grinding his/her teeth may be great enough to severely fracture a tooth leading to its extraction. 
  • Ill-fitting and loose dentures
