A Dental Implant Can Fully Replace a Missing Tooth that Was in Your Smile

Losing a tooth in your smile can impact your oral function, appearance, and clarity of speech. If it’s not replaced in some way, the lingering void can cause other teeth in the area to gradually drift out of their natural alignment. When this happens, the related teeth in your unique bite pattern can be at increased risk of dental fractures and tooth enamel attrition.

This is a two-stage treatment that starts with Dr. Sandor surgically installing a titanium abutment into the underlying bone structure of the void. Titanium is known for being biologically safe and it will fuse with your natural bone, creating an anchor point that replicates the original strength of the tooth.

After your gums have healed and the titanium implant has fully fused with the surrounding bone structure, Dr. Sandor can cement a porcelain dental crown onto it. This will fully restore the missing tooth’s presence, appearance, and function in your mouth.
