A Long-Term Approach to Tooth Replacement
In the past, replacing missing teeth meant wearing a denture or having a bridge made, but not anymore. Dental implants can replace your missing teeth with a more permanent option – one that has the potential to last an entire lifetime.
At Enso Dental, our patients can have their entire treatment completed right here in our clinics.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are independent tooth replacements that do not rely on adjacent teeth for support. Instead, each one functions as a prosthetic tooth. An implant looks similar to a screw made from titanium. It is placed directly into the bone, and functions similar to a real tooth. In fact, the body typically develops new bone around the implant, which secures it firmly into place.
Once your implant is installed, our dentists will place an abutment over it, which can then support a fixed prosthesis such as:
- Individual porcelain crown, for single tooth replacement
- A fixed bridge, to replace several teeth at one time
- Removable or fixed implant denture
Caring for Your New Teeth
Because dental implants are independent of your other teeth, they are very easy to care for. Simply brush and floss them daily, and schedule regular check-ups at our clinic.
