Do you have missing teeth which are cramping your confident smile? If having gaps in your smile is making your self-image suffer, a dental implant restoration may be what you need to bring back your smile confidence! Dental implants are common restorations which renew healthy smile function and appearance.

Dr. Tovar and our team in Peoria, Arizona, are happy to restore your smile with the help of dental implants. Whether you need to restore one tooth or several, dental implants do the job effectively and beautifully. One of the biggest benefits of dental implants is that they mimic your natural teeth in look and function.

With lost teeth, whether from damage or decay, your smile is missing not only the tooth but the tooth root as well. With a dental implant restoration, the tooth root is replaced so that a tooth (crown, bridge, etc.) can be anchored to the implant.

Your dental implant will be surgically implanted into the jawbone and is then allowed to heal and fuse to the bone. This will provide a strong foundation for the crown, bridge, or denture to come. To visualize what your implant will look like, picture the following components:

–First, the implant itself is a post which is either cylindrical or tapered constructed from titanium. This implant’s role in this restoration is to act as the tooth root.

— Next is the abutment, which is a connector that is attached to the top of the implant that allows it to connect to the new teeth or tooth.

— Finally, this is the part which is visible–the crown will be placed.

Once your dental implant is successfully placed, you will be able confidently smile, speak, laugh and eat once more. You won’t have to worry about being able to speak clearly, or that the restoration will stand out, or that it will move around in your mouth. It’s like having natural teeth again.
