One of the most popular ways to replace a missing tooth is with a dental implant. Not only will an implant improve your appearance, but it will also enhance the health and function of your mouth. At Camden Dental Care, our dentist, Dr. Raju Dhariwal, can provide a restoration or crown that sits on the implant, giving you back your smile. If you would like to see if you could use a dental implant in Elk Grove, California, start the process by calling 916-686-2888 to plan your visit.
Dental implants are prosthetic teeth designed to replace your original teeth after they have been lost or extracted. Implants are designed to replace both the root and the crown of your teeth to give you a final solution that looks, feels and functions just like your original tooth, including stimulating your supporting jawbone to keep it healthy and ensure your teeth remain stable in your mouth.
Implants consist of two main parts – an implant post and an implant restoration. At Camden Dental Care, we work with a trusted specialist to place your implant post before providing you with the restoration to complete your treatment. The implant post is a small screw made of titanium or another biocompatible material which replaces the tooth root. After the implant post has been placed and you have healed, our dentist can provide you with an implant restoration to restore the crown or crowns of your lost teeth. Depending on your needs your implant restoration could be a single crown, a bridge or a denture.
Your implant restoration is designed to give you a naturally beautiful, long-lasting solution for your teeth and smile. It will be designed to be both aesthetically pleasing and durable so that you can enjoy a beautiful smile for years to come.
As implants are designed to last for a lifetime when properly cared for, we strongly encourage you to maintain good oral hygiene and continue visiting our dentist regularly to ensure that your mouth remains healthy.
