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.
