Before the development of dental implants, a fixed bridge or dentures were the only alternative to replacing a missing tooth or teeth.
Implants are typically made of titanium and are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. After a healing process, an implant is anchored to the jawbone and acts as a foundation for a crown or bridge. In many cases, implants can be used to attach to dentures.
Not everyone is a candidate for a dental implant, however. For a successful implant to take hold, a candidate must have proper bone density and have a strong immune system. In all cases, dental implants require strict oral hygiene.
Implants are so well designed that they mimic the look and feel of natural teeth.
Dr Hartman will coordinate your care with an Oral Surgeon, who will place the implant into the jaw bone. Following the procedure, a period of time is required for the implant to take hold and for bone tissue to build up and anchor the device. When this phase is completed, Dr. Hartman will restore your dental implant restoring function and esthetics.
