Implant Dentistry – The Best Solution for Replacing a Missing Tooth
Dental implants are a restorative dentistry procedure that allows patients to replace missing teeth with teeth that are similar to their teeth as far as color and shape. Titanium anchors of the implants are very similar to the shape of the roots of a natural tooth.
Once the titanium anchors are placed into the patient’s jaw, the implant can serve as the root for the replacement of missing teeth or help to stabilize and support a denture. Then, usually in 2 appointments, Dr. Krieger will fabricate a custom abutment, which is made to fit exactly on the implant. Then a custom crown will go over the abutment.
Facial structure can also be restored by implants, and they also prevent bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing. Dr. Krieger can help you and consult with you so you can find the best solution for your missing teeth.
