Dental implants are one of the most invasive and extensive dental procedures that we routinely do at the office of Dr. Angela Berkovich, DMD. Whether you’ve experienced a trauma, tooth decay, or periodontal disease, the realization of living with a missing tooth or teeth can be difficult.
For many years, the only viable option for filling in missing teeth were dental bridges or dentures, however, dental implants have become the most reliable and permanent solution. Because of their foundation, implants don’t slip, don’t make noise or cause bone/jaw damage the way that dentures or bridges might. Our dentists are able to restore your smile, permanently, and help you gain your confidence back through dental implants.
Essentially, a dental implant is a tooth root replacement that is made of titanium, very strong and lightweight metal, and surgically implanted into your jaw. The metallic implant will serve as the fixed foundation of your new, fake tooth. Due to the nature of the procedure, we rely on our in-house periodontal specialists to implant the titanium post and our general dentists take over from that point to finish attaching the custom-built crown onto the implant post.
Whether you’re missing one or all of your teeth, dental implants can support a single crown to a full set of dentures, truly making it the best solution for permanent, aesthetically pleasing teeth. By using the highest quality materials possible, we guarantee that our implants will be strong, durable, and worth the investment.
Because dental implants are a surgical procedure, we encourage our patients to contact us for an in-depth consultation to discuss their options, plan of actions, and thorough explanation of the procedure.
