After an extraction takes place, an excellent option for replacing the missing tooth and restoring your smile, is a dental implant. An implant is a full replacement for the missing tooth.
The root of the tooth, anchoring it into the jaw is essentially replaced with a small titanium screw that is surgically inserted into the jaw. Once the mouth has properly healed from the procedure, an abutment and porcelain crown are placed onto the screw. The crown is created to match the look of the rest of the teeth. The final result is a beautiful tooth that looks very natural.
Dental Implants are a common and relatively simple procedure. Dr. Britton is very experienced with the procedure and highly recommends implants as a replacement for missing teeth.
