When decay, gum disease, bone loss or other reasons result in the extraction or loss of a tooth or multiple teeth, the replacement of choice is with dental implants. A dental implant is a titanium screw that is surgically placed into the jawbone. It is used to support a dental prosthesis of some type, most commonly a replacement for a missing tooth. The replacement tooth looks very much like a crown, only instead of covering a tooth, it is fitted in to the implant and surrounding gum.
Another application for dental implants would be for the support of a dental bridge that could be put into place permanently. If cost or bone availability are a factor and you have multiple missing teeth, this could be a solution.
Dental implants can also be used to anchor removable full sets of dentures, and this can be life-changing for denture wearers. Though implants are usually utilized to support tooth replacement solutions, there is another application. Dr. Goraya is extremely knowledgeable and experienced in determining the right solution for missing teeth. She will consult and advise you about a treatment plan and explain the available options for your particular situation.
