If you have lost a tooth, Dr. Scott Butts may recommend replacing it with a dental implant. Implants are a type of prosthetic tooth replacement, working to mimic the appearance, feel and functionality of your original teeth to deliver a highly stable, aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting solution which promotes your smile and oral health for a lifetime.
Implants consist of two fundamental components: the implant post and the implant restoration. The implant post is surgically placed into your jawbone, where it works to replace your tooth root and provide stability and support for your smile. This implant placement procedure is performed by a trusted and highly skilled oral surgeon with whom Dr. Butts works closely to ensure optimal results for your treatment.
After you have recovered from your implant placement, our dentist can provide you with an implant restoration to cap the post and complete your treatment. Implant restorations replace the crown or crowns of your teeth, restoring your appearance and oral function. Depending on your needs, this restoration could be a single crown, a bridge or a denture. This restoration is carefully designed to fit your smile perfectly and provide the best possible results for your oral health as well as your appearance.
Implants are intended to last for a lifetime, and with proper care they can ensure that you enjoy your renewed smile for many years to come.
