Tooth Implant Dentistry With Your Comstock Park Dentist
What Are Dental Implants?
A tooth implant is a permanent, healthy and beautiful way to replace missing teeth. A metal post is placed in the jaw bone to act as an artificial tooth root. This provides stability for the artificial tooth or teeth that will be attached to it and at the same time stimulates the bone to keep it healthy. Dr. Stewart and Dr. Hull can help you know if you are a candidate for implant dentistry and, in cooperation with an oral surgeon near our Comstock Park office, can provide you with a beautiful smile.
After the tooth implant is placed, Dr. Stewart and Dr. Hull will use their artistry, skill and experience in cosmetic dentistry to create a beautiful, natural-looking restoration for the implant either with a porcelain dental crown, dental bridge, or implant supported dentures.
The loss of a tooth can be a traumatic and difficult experience. We know that, but want you to know that with the restorative work we can do on top of dental implants, you can regain those missing teeth and smile confidently. Placing a dental crown or even implant-supported dentures on top of dental implants is a highly functional solution to missing teeth. The tooth implant ensures that whatever is placed on top of it (whether it’s a crown, dentures, or another solution), it will have a strong foundation that essentially becomes a part of your dental structure. We don’t want you to have to go through the process of losing that tooth again, and implant dentistry is one of the best ways to prevent that from happening.
