The best replacement for a missing tooth is a dental implant. This reliable treatment restores both your root and your tooth.
During oral surgery, a titanium post is positioned into your bone, which replaces your root and helps keep your bone healthy. It's allowed to heal for a period of 3 to 4 months, creating an excellent foundation for your new tooth.
Your new tooth is a customized porcelain crown designed to give you function and esthetics. This means that you'll be chewing, eating, and smiling again in no time. Because your crown is designed to match your existing teeth, no one is ever going to know you were missing a tooth.
While many dentists refer their patients to other specialists for implant surgery, at Davis Family Dentistry, we offer our patients all aspects of implant dentistry, which means that we can treat you throughout the entire process from start to finish in the comfort of our own office. Dr. Kurtis uses advanced computer-assisted technology and 3-D imaging to plan the placement of your implant and ensure accuracy.
If you're living with a failing or missing tooth, we encourage you to call Davis Family Dentistry to learn more about your options.
