Dental implants are an excellent replacement for broken and/or missing teeth. Dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Dental implants are typically made from medical grade titanium.
Some implants can be placed the same day that the tooth is extracted. Other implants need to be placed after the bone has had adequate time to heal. Implants typically take 3-4 months to fuse to the bone (osseointegrate) before your restorative dentist can attach the crown to the implant. Implants can replace a single tooth, several missing teeth, or all of the teeth. Dr. Pope will discuss all of the replacement options with you at the consultation.
