Missing teeth can look unpleasant and cause considerable dental problems, which is why it is important to get them fixed as soon as possible. A hole in your smile may mean that adjacent teeth are repositioning themselves and changing the way you look, the way you talk, and the way you chew. As a substitute for a missing tooth, Dr. Reeve Abraben may suggest that you receive a dental implant, which can restore both the function and look of your smile. A dental implant consists of a titanium post that is implanted into your jaw and a porcelain crown that mimics the look and feel of the original tooth. At Lake City Family Dental Center, PA, we do not place the implant post, but we can cap the post with a beautiful implant restoration.
After your implant post has been placed where your original tooth was, Dr. Reeve Abraben can then secure a permanent crown in place on top of the post. This treatment can provide a strong and durable replacement for an original tooth so you can chew and speak normally. We will also craft your implant restoration to blend in seamlessly alongside your other teeth.
