Dental implants are used to permanently replace one or more missing teeth. If you are looking for a long-lasting, natural-looking solution for replacing missing teeth, look no further! In Shakopee, Minnesota, dental implants are surgically placed in the jawbone, replacing the root of the missing tooth. Because of this, dental implants look and feel similar to natural teeth, and they are a more stable alternative to dentures. A period of healing follows the surgical placement, allowing the jawbone and dental implant post to begin to fuse together. Our experienced dentists, Dr. Jelinek and Dr. Silva, will then place the dental implant restoration to replace the crown of the missing tooth. Depending on your individual dental needs, your custom dental implant restoration may be a:
- Partial denture
- Full denture
- Dental crown
- Dental bridge
Dental implants can improve your smile by preventing the remaining teeth from shifting in the mouth, restoring lost facial volume, enhancing the appearance of your smile, and improving your ability to chew, speak, and eat properly. Whether you are missing just one tooth or all of the teeth, dental implants can effectively restore your smile. We invite you to call or visit us at Shakopee Dental today to learn more about how implant dentistry can improve your smile!
