Are you missing one or more teeth? Dental implant restorations are a type of dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth. Implant dentistry is one of the most exciting recent advances in the dental field; dental implants replace both the root and crown of the missing tooth, and they are typically regarded as the tooth replacement that looks and feels most like a natural tooth. Dental implant placement involves two main steps:
- First, the dental implant is surgically placed in the jawbone. During a period of healing, the implant and the jawbone begin to fuse together, providing a stable foundation for the dental implant restoration.
- Second, your talented dentist, Dr. Anderson, will place the dental implant restoration. In Clearfield, Utah, dental implant restorations are custom made to comfortably and aesthetically fit your smile. Depending on your individual dental needs, your dental implant restoration may be a dental crown, dental bridge, full denture, or partial denture.
A dental implant can improve the function, health, and appearance of your smile by restoring lost facial volume and improving your ability to speak, eat, and chew as normal. We invite you to contact Anderson Family Dentistry today to learn more about how implant dentistry can restore your smile.
