Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent base for fixed, replacement teeth. Compared to dentures, bridges and crowns, dental implants are a popular and effective long-term solution for people who suffer from missing teeth, failing teeth or chronic dental problems and are the new standard in tooth replacement.
Dr. Chickey uses a medical-grade titanium implant fixture that, over time, fuses to the living bone of the jaw, forming a durable anchor for your new teeth. There are no problems eating with dental implants and no more worrying about smiling freely and openly. However, like teeth, they require routine evaluations to assure their stability.
Dental implants have three parts:
- The Implant: A device that serves as a root for your new teeth. This is what permanently attaches to your jaw bone.
- The Abutment: A permanent, but removable by your doctor, connector that supports and holds a tooth or set of teeth.
- The Crown (or prosthetic tooth): This is the part of the tooth that you can see. It is usually made of Zirconium for durability and good looks.
Dental implants have emerged as the preferred choice for tooth replacement and East Coast Centre’s approach has become the favored model for dental implant treatment. Our team works together to build beautiful smiles in a way that works for you.
