Dental Implants

If you have one or more missing teeth and would like to regain your ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence, dental implants may be for you. Dental implants by Dr. Meena are a permanent solution for tooth replacement that restores strength, functionality and beauty -- all in one!

Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. These small titanium anchors, fixed directly into the space left by the missing tooth need time to heal. During the healing process, the anchor and bone begin to fuse together and integrate, creating a sturdy foundation for the replacement tooth. Once this healing process is complete, Dr. Meena attaches an abutment to the implant, which she then covers with a beautiful natural-looking porcelain crown. 

Implants are so well designed that they mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. A dental implant is the most ideal treatment option to replace a missing tooth. Dental implants are the only option that directly replaces the root of the tooth, not just the tooth itself. Dental implants are preferred because they provide stability for the new tooth and minimizes further bone loss when a tooth is missing. Dental implants are also a great option for anyone who has become disheartened with their current dentures or bridges. Some choose to replace dentures with dental implants because they can heighten their range of function and can be cared for with normal brushing and flossing, just like a natural tooth. The use of dental implants in order to retain a denture has become the standard of care. Like any restoration, implants require diligent oral hygiene and proper care to ensure they last a long time.

Dr. Meena offers dental implants to patients seeking a lifelong solution for tooth replacement that functions normally and looks amazing. We encourage you to discuss your tooth replacement options with Dr. Meena by scheduling your consultation today.
