Out of the multiple tooth replacement options out there, there is no solution quite as effective or revolutionary as dental implants for Smiles dental patients. Through a combination of titanium and porcelain materials, you can replace your tooth’s entire structure, which includes the root and the crown. Once your implant has fully healed, you’ll come back to see Dr. Niraja Patel to have your custom-made, implant-retained crown, bridge or denture placed! To get started on your implant treatment, schedule an appointment with our dental office by giving us a call.

Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants consist of three parts: the implant (which acts as the root), the abutment (which connects the restoration to the implant), and the restoration. The implant itself is made from titanium, which naturally bonds with bone tissue and keeps the implant properly anchored. Thanks to this integration, chewing your favorite foods feels natural because the jaw bone is being continuously stimulated. Furthermore, replacing the root also restores blood flow to the cheeks, preventing them from prematurely sagging and hollowing out. This is a common side effect of tooth loss that doesn’t get properly addressed via traditional tooth replacement methods.
Indications for Dental Implants
Dental implants can replace either one tooth or an entire arch of teeth at a time, making them ideal for patients with many different types of tooth loss. To learn which solution may work best for you, consider them below!
Missing One Tooth
Replacing a single tooth is as simple as placing one titanium post, an all-porcelain crown, and an abutment to connect the components together. We use porcelain for all of our implant-retained restorations because of its incredibly similar characteristics to natural tooth enamel.
