Today, dental implants have become a more popular choice than ever for replacing missing teeth or allowing patients to get rid of an unsatisfying denture – and for good reason.

Dental Implant Function
An implant is designed to function as a new tooth root, replacing the one the patient lost along with the white crown. This “root” then creates a strong and natural bond with the patient’s original tissue and bolsters the health of the jawbone by stopping bone loss and even encouraging new growth. The success of dental implants can be attributed to the fact that they seamlessly resemble the structure of natural teeth, unlike more traditional methods.
The Treatment Process
Once Dr. Brett Noorda has determined that you’re the right candidate for dental implants, patients will first undergo the surgical placement of the implants into their jawbone. As stated above, this procedure will then involve the gradual healing of your new implants alongside your natural soft and hard tissue; the creation of a strong and sturdy foundation for your eventual replacement teeth will be a months-long process. Once you’ve successfully healed, patients will then return to Dental Excellence so that we can design and place a new, custom-made restoration on top, completing the procedure.
When restoring a single tooth, a dental crown is used so that the health of neighboring teeth isn’t threatened. Multiple teeth, on the other hand, can be beautifully restored by an implant-retained prosthetic. This prosthetic closely resembles a traditional denture or bridge, but it’s designed to snap over placed implants, creating a much more confident fit overall. There are fixed and removable options available, depending on the patient’s preference.
