A dental implant is a small titanium post that is designed to replace the natural root of a missing tooth. Broken and missing teeth can dramatically alter the look, feel, and function of your mouth. Dental implants can help restore the confidence patients loose when they loose their teeth. The strong titanium implant post is placed here at Littleton Family Dental into a patients jaw bone, which will fuse with the implant for a solid and sturdy support for a dental restoration. Once stable, dental implants may support a crown to replace a single or multiple teeth, or may be designed to support a partial or complete denture to restore your entire smile.
Longevity is the ultimate consideration for any tooth replacement strategy. Conventional crowns, bridges, partial dentures and complete dentures are fine restorations, but many people are turning to dental implants as a longer-lasting alternative. Implants may also be desirable to avoid anything removable, and provide an aesthetic and more natural-feeling choice.
