When dental implants hold your crown, bridge, or denture in place, it's almost like having your natural teeth back.
It goes beyond function. Implants stop the jawbone recession that follows tooth loss, a benefit no other solution provides.
Sweet Tooth Dental in Kailua-Kona, HI, uses the latest in implant technology for natural-looking and long-lasting results.
How a Dental Implant Is Placed
A Closer Look at Dental Implants
Dental implant-supported restorations are the most lifelike solution for missing teeth and the only dentistry method that can replace an entire tooth from root to crown. An implant-supported restoration is made up of three parts: The implant, which is a threaded post that acts as the tooth root; a connector piece called an abutment; and the tooth restoration.
After the implant has successfully fused with the bone and is fitted with the other two parts, the replacement tooth looks and functions just like your natural teeth. Implants can be used to support a variety of restorations, from an individual tooth to a full-arch denture.
Are You Ready to Smile Again?
