Dental Implants

Dental implants are designed to allow the replacement of missing teeth to increase function and aesthetics.  Implants are small cylindrical titanium fixtures that typically serve to replace the roots of missing teeth and act as a base for replacement teeth that feel and work like natural teeth.  After adequate healing has occurred, a crown is placed on the implant as a final restoration.   For those patients who wear dentures, implants can be placed to “anchor” the denture in place.  Small attachments added to the implants will snap into attachments added to the inside of dentures.  This increases the amount of chewing force and also serves to stabilize the dentures from sliding and rocking during the chewing process.

During your next visit, we encourage you to inquire with Dr. Paesani why they are commonly regarded as the most effective solution for patients with missing teeth.
