Dental Implants

A dental implant is an appropriate method that aims to replace areas of missing teeth and provides support and stability for additional dental appliances. A dental implant is typically a small titanium screw that is applied to the natural bone of the jaw and is used as a support structure for a ceramic crown (replacement tooth).

Dental implants, along with replacement teeth, create a natural look and feel and can be utilized in both the upper and lower jaws. Due to their bio-compatible properties, these titanium dental implants provide many advantages for patients with areas of missing teeth and can be used in situations that call for the replacement of single or multiple missing teeth. The teeth attached to your dental implants are extremely natural in appearance.

Any person who is missing one or more teeth is a candidate for dental implants. Dr. Bakhtyari or one of our trained staff may discuss the role of dental implants in your overall dental care assessment. Additional reasons for dental implants include the need to resolve bite problems caused by shifting teeth, restoration of natural chewing functions, support for a dental bridge or dentures, and to restore the patient’s smile and confidence.

Although dental implants are durable and will last many years, regular brushing, flossing and dental visits will add life to your dental implants and replacement teeth. On occasion, dental implants may have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear. Dr. Bakhtyari will provide you with care instructions.
