Dental implants are used to permanently replace one or multiple missing teeth. Our experienced dentist, Dr. Jon Ackerman, is especially skilled in prosthodontics, including dental implant restorations, and is committed to returning your smile to optimal function, health, and beauty. The dental implant process includes two main steps:
- First, the dental implant, which is a screw or post created from titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone. This provides a stable foundation for the dental implant restoration and replaces the missing tooth root.
- Second, Dr. Jon Ackerman will place the dental implant restoration. Depending on your specific dental needs, you may need a dental crown, bridge, full denture, or partial denture. The dental implant restoration replaces the crown of the missing tooth.
