What is the dental implant?
Dr. Shivani Gupta of Peninsula Dental Implant Center describes dental implants as a restoration that provides a foundation for replacement teeth within the smile. The dental implants are made of titanium, a metal that is biocompatible with the body and strong and durable enough to last a lifetime. The implant is placed into the jaw bone and utilized as the base. Then, the top is covered with a restoration which may include:
Which restoration is appropriate for me?
The restoration chosen for a dental implant will vary greatly depending on the type of situation the patient is dealing with and the number of teeth being replaced. A single tooth replacement will often call for the placement of a dental crown over the implant, while multiple teeth will benefit from a dental bridge or a full denture. During the initial evaluation, patients discuss with their dentist the solution most appropriate for their needs. At this same appointment, the dentist will provide a thorough evaluation to decide if a patient is a good candidate for implants as well, or if alternative options are better suited.
