If you are interested in replacing your tooth with a permanent and natural-looking dental restoration, then a dental implant is for you. A dental implant in College Station, Texas, is a strong replacement tooth made of a titanium post (which is screwed into your jawbone) and a dental crown. Dr. Parker Long and our dental team are happy to provide the dental implant restoration for your smile. When an oral surgeon has placed the titanium abutment in your underlying bone, we can place the perfectly made dental crown over it. To schedule an appointment now, call 979-846-0082 and talk to a member of our dental team.
Dental implants are lasting, stable tooth replacements that can replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or complete arches of teeth. The dental implant post, which is a screw made of titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. It replaces the missing tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. A healing period is often required to allow the bone to begin to bond with the biocompatible post.
Following this healing period, our dentist will place the dental implant restoration, or replacement tooth, which fits on top of the implant post. Depending on which teeth are missing and your personal dental needs, your implant restoration might be a dental crown, dental bridge, or a complete or partial denture. Each dental implant restoration is custom made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically.
Replacing a missing tooth can restore your smile to optimal health, function, and appearance. A dental implant is a great option for restoring your smile because the implant is designed to look, function, and feel just like your natural teeth, and with proper care, it can last a lifetime.
