Dr. Karam Rassam offers dental implants to replace your missing teeth. Implants are the ideal replacement for missing teeth, as they replace the root and crown to provide you with a long-term solution which mimics the appearance and function of the original tooth.

When replacing a tooth, you want something that is just as stable and durable as a natural tooth. A dental implant is a wonderful restorative option that can mimic the look and feel of the tooth it is replacing. The post of the dental implant takes the place of the tooth root, and its titanium material is very biocompatible as it fuses with your jawbone for a strong foundation. After the post is placed, we will wait until the post successfully fuses with your jawbone, which may take a few months.
After the healing period when the post is secure and stable, our dentist will then install your customized implant restoration over the post. This restoration may be a dental crown, dental bridge or denture. The restoration will be matched to blend in with your smile for a natural look. It will also be made to fit inside your mouth comfortably so that you can confidently use it as you would your real teeth.
The replacement of a missing tooth is important for not only your appearance but your oral health and function as well. Your smile can look natural again, and your teeth can also be used to eat and speak normally again. With good at-home care and regular checkups with our dentist, a dental implant can last many years or even a lifetime. If you would like to learn more about dental implants and if they can help you regain a great smile, please give us a call!
