Missing one or more teeth is unhealthy. Teeth shift to fill the space which causes your jawbone to shift. Tooth implant is a team effort and can require multiple dental disciplines. The titanium implant is surgically placed by one of our specialty partners. Once Dr. Fox is assured the implant has fused with the bone he then places the abutment which fits over the implant, then the crown is fitted onto the abutment. Dental implants are a permanent solution to tooth replacement and the most natural replacement option.
With advances in technology and materials, there are a number of implant options that include permanent dentures, which can be a more affordable alternative. We can help you understand choices that fit your lifestyle and expectations.
This video shows you how a dental implant substitutes a missing front tooth’s root structure with a post placed into the bone and a special healing cap on top.
This video shows you how fixed-hybrid dentures, or screw-retained dentures, replace teeth and provide improved overall function for eating and speech.
This video shows you how a removable overdenture can replace missing teeth using dental implants with special fittings that snap the denture in place within the mouth.
