If you are missing even just one tooth, your bone structure, chewing ability, and the aesthetics of your smile are compromised. Dental implants are the most natural way to replace missing teeth and help to prevent further deterioration of your oral health. Chesapeake, VA restorative dentist Dr. John Cranham offers full-service dental implants for single missing teeth, multiple missing teeth and a full arch of missing teeth.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a prosthetic tooth system that replaces the root system of the missing tooth. Dental implants are then capped using a high quality, custom designed dental restoration for a natural and beautiful looking tooth replacement. A small titanium post will be surgically implanted into the jaw bone. The post will gradually integrate with the jaw bone for a permanent and highly durable restoration. Once the implant is healed, an abutment is attached to the implant to be used as an anchor for the final dental restoration.
Are dental implants right for me?
Dr. Cranham uses the most modern dental technology and techniques to help make dental implants available to a wide range of patients. He will conduct a thorough oral health exam and bone analysis to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. Dr. Cranham uses Galileos Cone Beam Computerized Tomography to view the jaw three dimensionally to ensure the best fit, comfort, and longevity of your dental implants.
