Have you lost one or more teeth? Would you like to replace your missing tooth with a stable, permanent restoration? If so, a dental implant may be the right option for your smile. A dental implant is a tooth replacement designed to last a lifetime. The implant process begins with a titanium post or screw that is surgically placed in the jawbone. After a period of healing, our skilled dentist will place a dental implant restoration on top of the implant post to complete the restoration. While the type of restoration depends on your specific dental needs, the most common restoration for dental implants in Los Alamos, New Mexico, is a dental crown. Each implant crown is custom made to match the appearance of your natural teeth and to function just like your original teeth.
Implant dentistry can restore your smile and improve your life. With a dental implant, you will notice an improvement in the function of your smile in chewing, eating, and speaking, and your beautiful smile will be complete once again. With proper care, a dental implant can last a lifetime. For more information on the benefits of implant dentistry, we welcome you to contact Dr. Rachel Meyer’s dental office. We are dedicated to restoring your smile!
