Dental implants are an excellent solution for replacing missing teeth, crucial for both aesthetics and proper function. At Spitzer Dental, we are dedicated to restoring your smile with precision and care.

Dental implants are a natural-looking and highly functional solution for missing teeth. The implant consists of a small titanium post that acts as a replacement for the tooth root, with a crown or bridge affixed above it. This non-removable system allows you to chew and smile confidently once again.

Depending on your needs, we can fix a single crown, a bridge, or a full arch of teeth to the implants. Various types of implant restorations are available, and your dentist will discuss the best option for you.

An abutment connects your implant to the restoration. We may use a healing abutment to ensure your gums heal properly between implant placement and the insertion of your final restoration.

The implant post is a small titanium rod that serves as a replacement for your tooth root. It is surgically placed and restored for function after healing.

During your consultation, we will review your oral and health history to determine if you are a suitable candidate for implants. The site of the missing or damaged tooth will be assessed to see if additional procedures, such as sinus lifting or bone grafting, are necessary.

On the day of your implant surgery, we will ensure you are comfortable and numb. The implant site will be cleaned, and the implant post will be placed. Your dentist will provide follow-up instructions and guide you on the next steps for restoring your implant tooth.

Maintaining proper oral hygiene is crucial for the health of your dental implant. Brush and floss around your new tooth regularly, as bone loss can occur with improper care. Continue to visit Spitzer Dental at least twice a year for checkups and cleanings to ensure your implant remains healthy and functional.
