When a patient is missing one or more permanent teeth, Dr. Brian J. Waggle may recommend dental implants in Zanesville, Ohio. A dental implant consists of a titanium implant post and a dental restoration. The implant post, which is placed by a specialist, acts as a replacement for the tooth roots. During the healing process, which will take six to 12 weeks, your jawbone will grow around the implant post. This will make the dental implant a permanent part of your smile. Several months after your dental implant has been placed by an oral surgeon or other dental specialist, you will visit Northpointe Dental to receive an implant restoration. Depending on your treatment plan and your individual needs, your restoration could be a dental crown, a dental bridge or a denture. Our dentist will place your dental implant restoration for optimal results so you can enjoy a smile that is functional, beautiful and complete once again. Dental implants are often the best option for replacing missing teeth because they are:
