Have you ever wondered if there are modern alternatives to traditional dentures, partials, and bridges? Beck Dental Care offers patients the most natural-feeling and functioning replacement teeth option available, dental implants. This exciting procedure combines modern dental materials with biological science to create strong, permanent prosthetic teeth.
A dental implant has two parts: the implant post (imitation tooth root) and the implant restoration (imitation tooth crown). First, Dr. Beck or Dr. Hart will evaluate your oral health and medical history to determine if dental implants are right for you. Next, he will work with a trusted oral surgeon who will place a small, titanium post into the socket left by your missing tooth. Titanium is biocompatible, which means that your bone will fuse to it naturally. After the healing process, the dentist will secure your replacement tooth, bridge, denture, or partial to the dental implant post(s).
By replacing the tooth root as well as the crown, dental implants closely mimic nature and offer the most secure and longest lasting replacement solution. Dental implants are permanent, and with proper maintenance, they last most patients a lifetime.
