Dental Implant Dentist
Missing teeth? We can help! Dr. Tyler Morehart provides dental implants to replace your missing teeth and give you back a beautiful, confident and healthy smile. With implant dentistry, you can enjoy a long-lasting final result and looks, feels and functions exactly like your natural teeth.
Dental implants are designed to replace missing teeth, and unlike other tooth replacement options will replace both the roots and the crowns of your teeth to give you a more complete solution for your smile. An implant consists of two main parts – the implant post and the implant restoration. The implant post replaces the tooth root, while the implant restoration consists of a prosthetic tooth that replaces the visible crown or crowns to complete your treatment.
The first step of your treatment is your implant placement procedure. During this procedure, our dentist will surgically insert the implant post into your jawbone, where it integrates with your bone to provide a stable, long-lasting foundation for your smile. After you have healed and recovered from this procedure, our dentist can provide you with your restoration. Depending on your needs, your implant restoration could be a single crown, a dental bridge, or a complete or partial denture.
Implants offer many benefits for your oral health and smile, including:
- Performing the same functions as your original teeth in stimulating your supporting jawbone to keep it healthy
- Restoring the aesthetics and function of your smile
- Giving you a permanent solution for your missing teeth
- Preventing your remaining natural teeth from shifting out of place
Anyone who has lost a tooth is a candidate for implant dentistry. Please keep in mind, however, that if you have a pre-existing condition such as tooth decay or gum disease you will need to receive treatment for that problem before you can receive an implant.
Please also remember that implants require the same level of care as your natural teeth – regular brushing and flossing as well as routine dental visits. By properly caring for your implant, you can ensure that it lasts a lifetime.
