If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants may be a good option for restoring the health, function, and appearance of your smile. Dental implants are permanent replacements for both the crowns and roots of the missing teeth. In Fort Wayne, Indiana, dental implants are surgically placed in the jaw, replacing the roots of the missing teeth and providing a stable foundation for the dental implant restorations. We then allow a period of healing of a few months so that the jawbone and dental implants can fuse together. Following this healing period, your talented dentist at Tooth Acres Dentistry will place the dental implant restoration. Your custom dental implant restoration may be a:
- Dental bridge
- Dental crown
- Full denture
- Partial denture
Dr. Painter will help you determine which type of dental implant restoration best meets your individual dental needs. A dental implant can improve your facial volume and shape, prevent the remaining natural teeth from shifting in the mouth, enhance the beauty of your smile, and restore your ability to eat, chew, and speak as normal.
