At RM Advanced Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, we are committed to improving your oral health, smile and quality of life. Dr. Roberto Macedo provides implant dentistry to replace your missing teeth and give you back a confident, beautiful and fully functional smile.
Dental implants are prosthetic teeth that work by replacing both the root and the crown of your tooth. Implants consist of two main parts – the implant post and the implant restoration.
Implant posts are small screws, usually made of titanium or another biocompatible material, that are surgically inserted into your jawbone. They replace the tooth root, and work the same way that your original tooth root did to anchor your tooth to your jawbone, provide a stable foundation for the restoration and stimulate your supporting bone tissue to keep it healthy.
Implant restorations replace the crown of the tooth. Depending on your individual needs and how many teeth you are replacing, your implant restoration may consist of a dental crown, dental bridge or denture. These are custom-designed to fit your smile and provide you with a long-lasting and beautiful result. Some of the types of implants available at our office include:
Dental implants are designed to permanently replace your missing teeth, and can last for a lifetime when properly cared for. You can care for your implant the same way you would your original teeth – with good oral hygiene and regular dental visits.
Anyone who is missing teeth is a candidate for implant dentistry. As long as your teeth and gums are healthy, you will most likely be able to receive an implant treatment. If you are diagnosed with a pre-existing dental condition (such as tooth decay or periodontal disease), our dentist will provide treatment for those conditions prior to providing an implant.
