Implant dentistry is a field of restorative dentistry focused on replacing missing teeth with permanent, natural-looking dental prosthetics. Implant dentistry can be used to replace one tooth, multiple missing teeth or even a full arch of missing teeth. If you are missing one or multiple teeth and you’re interested in implant dentistry in Crystal Lake, Dr. Brian P. Overmyer of Perfect Choice Dental is here to help.
Dental implants are at the foundation of all implant-supported restorations. Dental implants are small titanium or zirconium posts that are shaped like a screw and placed permanently into the gumline and jawbone. During your consultation, Dr. Overmyer will assess your dental health to determine whether your jawbone is sufficient and healthy enough for implant surgery. If so, he will send you to a trusted specialist to complete the procedure. Once the post is placed and healed, the dental implant acts as the missing tooth’s root.
There are three major types of implant-supported restorations to choose from at Perfect Choice Dental
