An implant is a solution to missing teeth and the gold standard treatment option for tooth replacement. Dental implants provide the most realistic treatment options for patients wanting to get as close to their original dentition as possible. Although dental implants can be the most realistic tooth replacement option, not all patients are good candidates for dental implants.
Here at Alton Bay Dental we work closely with the best oral surgeons and periodontists in the area that will provide exceptional care and aid in determining whether or not you may be a good candidate for a dental implant. Once a treatment plan is decided upon the oral surgeon or periodontist will place the titanium portion of the implant. Dental implants are made of titanium and integrate within the bone. This creates a solid foundation for an abutment and crown to be placed on the implant here at Alton Bay Dental. Once the implant has fully integrated within the bone (healed), the abutment and crown can be designed a placed on the implant, thus restoring the function and esthetics of that missing tooth.
