Dental implants can be used as a secure foundation for any number of prosthetic teeth. They’re small titanium posts that are surgically placed below the gum line. Because they’re made from a biocompatible metal, they naturally fuse with the jawbone, replacing the root structure of your missing teeth while providing the area with renewed blood flow and stimulation. Once the restoration is attached to the implant, it will look and feel like your teeth were never missing in the first place.
If you’re missing consecutive teeth, you’ll likely be able to benefit from a custom-crafted dental bridge. This restoration consists of two crowns at either end of one or more free-standing artificial teeth, called pontics. The crowns are secured to the two natural teeth on either side of the gap in your smile, holding the pontics in place. This will enhance your ability to chew and allow you to smile without worrying about the space anymore.

Fixing Dental Implant-Related Problems
Are you experiencing a loose or bothersome dental implant? Dr. Shah can salvage the post and protect your investment for the long-haul. He specializes in restoring dental implants and the adjoining prosthesis. When it comes to implant salvation, it may require removing the implant post and cleaning around it to remove the infection to promote healing.
