Are one, two or all of your teeth in need of replacement? Dental implants are the best option for replacing any number of teeth. Trust Ocoee Oral Surgery to give you the beautiful smile you deserve!
Dental implants are the best way to replace a missing tooth. An implant does not require the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth to be ground down to support a bridge. The crown will look and feel like (or better than) the tooth it replaced.
IS A CROWN AND DENTAL IMPLANT THE SAME?
Dental implants are prosthetic roots, usually made of titanium, that serve to function the same way a natural tooth root does. The dental implant is placed in the jawbone so that it can fuse with your natural bone and become a strong and sturdy foundation for the replacement tooth, custom-made to match your natural teeth. This replacement tooth is known as the crown.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY DENTAL IMPLANT CROWN?
Caring for dental implants is just like caring for your natural teeth: brush, floss and maintain regular dental cleanings and check-ups, as recommended to keep your replacement teeth healthy.
