Capital Dental Care
When it comes to missing teeth, dental implants offer a solid base for the replacement tooth (a crown, dental bridge, or denture). An implant is a small titanium screw that we place in the jaw in place of the root of a missing tooth. Over a period of a few months, the implant fuses with the bone to form an anchor for the restoration. If your jawbone isn’t strong enough for an implant, we can perform a bone graft to strengthen the jaw in preparation for an implant.
Once the implant is in place and fused with the jawbone, we’ll bring you back in to fit you for your restoration. If we’re replacing a single tooth, we will fit you for either a dental crown or bridge. If you’re missing most or all teeth in a single arch, we might recommend implant-supported dentures. When secured by implants, dentures are more secure, and they don’t click or slip.
At Capital Dental Care, we pride ourselves on being an affordable dentist who provides dental implants for our patients
