We are pleased to offer several tooth replacement options for our patients at Rockport Family Dental. Dental implants are one of the most versatile, naturalistic tooth replacements available. The dental implant is a small screw or post, usually created from titanium, that is surgically implanted in your jawbone at the site of your missing tooth. This replaces the root of the missing tooth and ensures that your dental implant is a secure, lasting restoration. During a period of healing, which may last several months, the bone begins to bond with the titanium implant in a process called osseointegration. After your gums and jawbone have healed, our skilled dentists will place the dental implant restoration. Depending on your personal dental needs, and on how many teeth are missing, your custom-made implant restoration may be a dental crown, dental bridge, or full or partial denture.
A dental implant can improve your smile by restoring lost facial volume, enhancing the appearance of your smile, and improving your ability to speak, chew, and eat as normal. For more information on the benefits of dental implants in Rockport, Massachusetts, and to schedule your consultation with Dr. Kim and Dr. Gavelis, we invite you to call or visit us soon. We are committed to restoring your smile!
