Dr. Ouellette can use implants to replace a missing tooth. From root to crown, they are designed to mimic the appearance and function of your natural teeth. Each implant is made up of a post and a restoration, such as a crown or denture. The post looks like a large screw and is made to be implanted into the jawbone, where the missing tooth’s root would normally go. Titanium makes up the post, similar to a knee or hip replacement device. Titanium also has the unique ability to fuse to bone. This helps ensure the success of a procedure—that as an implant is placed into the jawbone, the dental implant will secure and prevent the bone loss that often occurs with lost teeth.
After the initial post implant, a crown, bridge or denture will then be placed overtop the post.
