With dental implants, you can enjoy permanent new teeth that have the potential to last for the rest of your life. Each prosthetic root is made from titanium, a material that has been used for decades in surgical joint replacement and is highly biocompatible. This artificial root encourages new bone growth throughout the jaw, anchoring it more firmly into place than even the healthiest of teeth.
Depending on the number of teeth you have missing, implants are capable of supporting:
If wearing a traditional removable denture isn’t for you – then you’ll love the idea of one that is retained by dental implants! These full mouth prostheses can be screwed directly to the abutment, so that they never slip out of place. Plus, they’re even slimmer in size and shape, making it easier for you to talk and chew your favorite foods.
To replace several teeth at one time, an extended dental bridge can be supported on each end by a durable implant root. It’s not uncommon for us to replace up to 3 or 4 teeth in a row at one time.
An independent implant with a porcelain crown is the closest thing to replacing a single missing tooth. It looks and feels just like the real thing!
Although Dr. Cook does not surgically place the implants in our Huntsville office, we work closely with an oral surgeon who does. Once your implants are placed, you return to our office to have the fixed restoration secured on top.
