Dental implants can be used to replace a patient’s single, several, or set of missing teeth. A titanium screw makes up the initial implant post. Through surgery, this post is placed into the bone of the jaw, right below the location of the missing tooth. The bone is then allowed to heal and let the post become integrated into the bone structure.

After this period of time, the post is topped with one of several restoration prosthetics. These may include removable appliances, such as partial or complete dentures. If the patient prefers, we can also provide permanent, fixed solutions like dental bridges or dental crowns. Depending on the patient, our doctors may recommend any of these restorations. Each dental appliance or prosthetic will be custom fit in order to blend in naturally with your teeth. Whatever our patient chooses, Planet Dental will make sure their results will match each patient’s needs.
