We are also able to use dental implants to improve the function of loose or poorly fitting dentures.
Dental implants can now be used to replace missing teeth or support unstable dentures. They are fixed in place so that they do not move or wobble and have a natural appearance. When replacing missing teeth, they consist of three components:
- The titanium implant which is placed into the jaw bone
- An implant abutment which is used to connect the implant to the crown
- And an implant crown which accurately replicates the part of the tooth above the gums
Dental implants are typically placed and restored over two stages. At Fenton Dental we perform comprehensive consultations to ensure the proper planning of any implant treatments. At this time we will provide a detailed treatment plan that will detail the processes and costs involved.
