Dr. Mirci and Dr. Dan provide dental implants to replace your missing teeth and restore your smile and oral function. Implants replace both the tooth root and the crown, giving you a result that looks, feels and function just like your original tooth. Implants have two main parts, the post and the restoration.
The implant post replaces the tooth root. When you receive an implant, our dentists will surgically insert the implant post into your jawbone. This post then integrates with the jawbone to provide a stable foundation for your teeth, stimulating the bone so that it remains healthy and strong.
The implant restoration replaces the visible portions of your missing tooth or teeth. Depending on how many teeth you are replacing, it could be a single crown, a bridge or a denture. Your restoration will be designed to blend in with your teeth and provide you with a natural, comfortable and aesthetic result for years to come. Implants are designed as a long-term solution, and when properly cared for with good oral hygiene and regular dental visits, they can last a lifetime.
Anyone who has lost a tooth is a candidate for implant dentistry. As long as your teeth and gums are healthy you should be able to receive an implant without any problems. Our dentists may recommend holding off on an implant treatment if you have a pre-existing condition, such as gum disease or tooth decay, which needs to be treated first. A procedure such as bone grafting may also be recommended prior to your implant placement to ensure that you have enough supporting bone tissue to keep the implant stable.
