Dental implants are a stable, long-lasting options for replacing missing teeth. Titanium posts are surgically fused into the jawbone beneath the gums. Once placed, a dentist will mount the artificial tooth, providing a secure, precise fit. Implants can serve as a base for individual artificial teeth, bridges and even dentures. They are an ideal restoration for patients who have trouble with slipping dentures or seek a long-term solution.
While not common, there are a growing number of patients seeking full, restorative implant dentistry. These are complex cases requiring experience and precision. For a step-by-step case study completed by Gibson Dental Designs, see below.
