A dental implant is a tooth-root substitute that is surgically attached to the jawbone. After the implant has healed, a restoration (crown) is placed above the gum line to look and operate like a natural tooth.
After a specialist has placed the dental implant as the tooth root substitute to the jawbone and you are ready for the crown to be placed, Dr. Hawkins can create a dental implant restoration that looks just like your natural teeth.
Implants look and feel so close to a natural tooth, no one will suspect it is a restoration.
Dental implants are fixed and therefore are not removed for eating or cleaning like you would with some dentures or partials.
If you are missing teeth, dental implants are a natural-looking way to get your smile back.
If you are worried about the potential cost of implant restoration, please let us know. We are proud to offer our patients in-office financing options so you don’t have to choose between other commitments and your dental health.
