Dr. Angela Ishak offers dental implants to replace your missing teeth and fully restore your smile, oral health and oral function. Implants are considered the ideal option for replacing teeth, as they replace both the roots and the crowns to promote better long-term results for your smile.
Dental implants consist of two main parts — the implant post and the implant restoration. Implant posts are small screws, usually made of titanium or another biocompatible material, and are surgically inserted into your jawbone to replace the tooth roots. Implant restorations replace the crowns of your missing teeth, capping the posts to complete your treatment and finish restoring your smile. Depending on how many teeth are missing, your implant restoration may be a single crown, a bridge, or a complete or partial denture. This restoration will be custom made to fit your smile perfectly and give you a beautiful, long-lasting final result.
Implants are intended to permanently replace your missing teeth and require the same care as your original teeth in order to remain stable and functional in your mouth. This includes daily brushing and flossing as well as receiving routine preventive care from our dentist.
If you have lost teeth you may wonder if dental implants are right for you. Anyone who has lost teeth is a candidate for implant dentistry, and as long as your teeth and gums are healthy you should be able to receive implants without any complications. If you have gum disease, tooth decay or other pre-existing condition, however, you will need to receive treatment for that condition before you can receive dental implants. Our dentist will evaluate your teeth and mouth during your initial consultation to determine the state of your oral health and whether or not dental implants are a good option for you.
