A dental implant is an excellent treatment option for replacing one or multiple missing teeth. In fact, it is considered the gold standard in the industry for tooth replacement because an implant restores both your tooth and your root, essentially giving you back the appearance and function of a natural tooth.
Dr. Godinez works with top oral surgeons in the area for the placement phase of your tooth implant and monitors the healing and integration of your implant after your surgery. When your dental implant is fully integrated and fused with your jawbone, he will create a restoration to complete your smile. This might be a custom porcelain crown that blends seamlessly with your smile for a single tooth replacement. Or, it could be a dental bridge or denture if you are replacing multiple missing teeth.
Tooth implants not only restore function and aesthetics to your smile, but they also protect the health of your jawbone by acting just like a root and keeping it stimulated for growth and regeneration.
