Are you missing one or more permanent teeth? Do you yearn to have an attractive, fully functional smile once again? Ask Dr. Garth Collins how a dental implant in Folsom, California, can help you.

What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a restoration that replaces both the root and the crown of a missing tooth. Dental implants are made up three parts. A titanium screw, called an implant, is placed into the jawbone, where it fuses with the bone. In this way, the dental implant becomes a permanent part of your smile. A porcelain dental crown is placed on top of the implant screw. An abutment connects these two pieces.

How can a dental implant benefit my smile?
There are many advantages to choosing implants for your smile. Dental implants:

– Do not require the alteration of healthy teeth
– Restore the ability to eat and speak correctly
– Restore the appearance of your smile
– Are very durable and can last for many years, or even a lifetime
– Can restore your ability to eat and speak correctly
