Dental Implants in Zanesville
Dental implants are used to replace a single tooth, several teeth or to support a set of dentures. A titanium post is surgically placed in the jaw to act as an anchor for replacement teeth. Titanium is bio-friendly metal commonly used in other body part replacements such as knees and hips. In our office, we refer you to the most qualified periodontist or oral surgeons in our area for implant placement. As bone grows around the implant it forms a secure foundation for a single tooth, several teeth or for a full set of teeth as in a denture. This may take several months before the abutment and replacement teeth can be attached to the implant by your dentist. A single tooth implant mimics a natural tooth the best and has a very high success rate in a good candidate. Your dentist will help you decide whether dental implants are a good option for you.
