Dental Implant Dentist

Our dentist, Dr. Tyler Morehart, can place and restore dental implants in Maumee and Toledo, Ohio. Unlike a bridge or dentures, an implant replaces the crown and root of your missing tooth for a permanent, stable restoration. Call Morehart Dentistry for your appointment to see if this restoration is right for you.

Dental implants are a modern and versatile solution for a missing tooth or several missing teeth. There are two main parts to every dental implant: the implant post, which is embedded into the jawbone and replaces the missing tooth root, and the implant restoration, which is the prosthetic tooth that replaces the visible crown and fills the gaps in your smile. While restorations may need to be replaced over time due to wear, when cared for properly, an implant can last for the rest of your life.

After your initial restorative consultation with our dentist, your implant placement is the first step to restoring your smile with dental implants. During this procedure, the implant post, a small screw made of biocompatible material, is placed in the jawbone, where it integrates with your natural bone in a process called osseointegration in order to provide a stable and long-lasting foundation for your restoration. After a healing period, your custom-designed tooth replacement is connected to the implant post via an abutment to complete your treatment and restore the function, beauty and health to your smile.

There are many forms your restoration can take depending on your specific needs. If you are replacing a single tooth, our dentist will likely recommend a dental crown to finish your treatment. If you are replacing multiple teeth, you may be interested in a implant-supported bridge or denture. We will make sure you understand the benefits of each replacement option before making your decision. We will also take care to ensure your new restoration fits comfortably in your mouth and looks natural next to your surrounding teeth.

Beyond their aesthetic impact, missing teeth can cause a deterioration of your overall dental health. To keep your smile healthy and functional, and to ensure life-long dental health, call or visit our office. We can help with dental implants in Toledo and Maumee, Ohio. We look forward to helping you find the right restoration for your smile.
