The Dental Implant

  Tooth Replacement


Dental Implants

For the replacement of missing teeth it is imperative that dental implants are considered. To see how effective dental implants can be, roll your mouse over the photos below...

Whether replacing a single tooth or several teeth, implants may provide a more natural appearance and feel. Unlike conventional bridgework, implants can provide tooth replacement without the need to cut down adjacent teeth. The dental preparation of healthy teeth can undermine their integrity and lead to further problems later on. In addition to preservation of the adjacent teeth, the implant also prevents the loss of bone in the area of the missing tooth. Immediately following the loss of a tooth the bone begins to melt away. Replacing the tooth with a implant restores function to the bone and prevents the resorption of the bone.

How the implant works: To replace a tooth with an implant, Dr. D'Angelo places the implant in the bone in the position of the missing tooth root. This subsequently acts as an anchor to which a new crown is attached after the implant has undergone an integration period. The final restoration is placed by Dr. D'Angelo four to six months after the placement of initial dental implants.
