Dental Implants – Best Way to Replace a Missing Tooth
Dental implants are made of titanium and are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw by one of the dentists at West Market Dental. Once the healing is complete, usually 3 to 6 months after the surgery, patients return to our office to have natural looking implant crowns placed onto the implants.
Advantages of dental implants:
- Permanently fixed, unlike removable dentures
- Special cleaning aids are usually not necessary, unlike having a dental bridge. Patients would brush and floss as with their own natural teeth
- Generally last longer than dental bridges since it is impossible to get a cavity around or under them.
Below are some of the more popular services that patients frequently inquire about.
