At Lebanon Dental Center, Dr. Aman Syed offers comprehensive dental implant therapy for your missing tooth needs. When it comes to restoring missing teeth, today’s implant designs are capable of lasting for the rest of your life.
We can use implants to replace single teeth when topped off with a ceramic crown. The final unit functions independently of your other teeth, making it an optimal and non-invasive alternative to dental bridges.
Are several teeth missing? The you’ll be glad to learn that implants can be used in pairs to support longer prosthetics, such as multi-tooth bridges, hybrid denture designs, and removable overdentures.
An implant is a root-shaped restoration that sets directly inside of a newly created socket in your bone. The ribbed surface is textured, so that when new bone develops and fuses to the implant, it becomes fully integrated and does not move.
It can take up to 3-6 months for full integration to take place. Although you’ll have a restoration in the meantime, Dr. Syed will want to place a permanent, customized crown, bridge, or denture after your implants are fully integrated.
