The Dental Implant Timeline
About Dental Implants
A Dental Implant is the equivalent of the root of a tooth. It is used to permanently anchor a tooth/group of teeth to the bone, bringing your smile back to its original form. Being the only true permanent solution for missing teeth, dental implants are changing the lives of many people every day. Dr. Hanna uses minimally invasive implant techniques to create a truly natural smiles.
Single Tooth Implant
If you have lost a single tooth due to an accident or from periodontal disease, that one tooth can be easily replaced using a dental implant. Your new tooth will look and function just like your other natural teeth.
Occasionally a patient is missing more than one tooth, but still has healthy gums and surrounding teeth. In this case a multiple implant solution is the best option. Two fixtures are implanted and the crown is attached, leaving other healthy teeth intact.
