Dental implants are permanent tooth replacements. The dental implant is a post that is surgically placed in the jawbone to replace the root of the missing tooth. This provides a strong foundation for the dental implant restoration, ensuring that your tooth replacement is stable and secure. Dr. Mettler and Dr. Griego work closely with a local specialist during the placement process to make sure you receive the best possible results. After a period of healing, our skilled dentists will place the dental implant restoration, which replaces the crown of the missing tooth. Depending on your individual dental needs and how many teeth are missing, we may recommend a dental crown, bridge, partial denture, or full denture. When in place, a dental implant can restore the health, function, and appearance of your smile.
What are the advantages of dental implants?
Dental implants are very versatile and can be used to replace one or multiple teeth. Because they are surgically implanted in the jawbone, they are exceptionally stable, unlike removable dentures. Dental implants look and feel very similar to natural teeth, and when properly cared for, they can last a lifetime.
