What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a tooth replacement option that is exceptionally stable, lasting, and natural looking. The dental implant provides an artificial tooth root to replace the missing tooth, so it will also function and feel very similar to your natural teeth. The dental implant process involves first surgically placing the implant, which is a small screw or post made of titanium, in the jawbone. Dr. Nadia Hamouda works with the best oral surgeons in the area to ensure a successful placement. After a period of healing, our skilled dentist will place the dental implant restoration on top of the implant post to completely restore your smile. Depending on which teeth are missing, your dental implant restoration may be a partial denture, full denture, dental crown, or dental bridge. Dental implants are very versatile and can be used to replace either just one missing tooth or several missing teeth.
