What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a device designed to replace a missing tooth root. The implant is made from strong, lightweight and biocompatible titanium. This means that it is long lasting and typically not rejected by the body. It is placed inside the bone just as the missing tooth root and then fused to bone. The implant becomes the tooth root to which a porcelain crown is later attached. Once the procedure is completed, the new tooth is expected to imitate both the appearance and function of the missing tooth, which in turn improves your overall look.
To become a candidate for a dental implant surgery, your entire oral cavity must be in top shape. Your jawbone must be dense enough to provide the implant a strong footing. Because of this, there are cases where implant are not advised. Dr Pham and her staff have a careful assessment designed make sure that implants are indeed the proper solution in each case.
If you are missing one or more teeth and are considering improving your smile, contact doctor Pham for an exam. She can give you a thorough examination and let you know if you are a candidate for a dental implant or which procedure that best suits your situation.
