Dental implants can be a permanent solution for missing teeth in your smile. Implants can restore your dental health, aid in chewing and speech production, and improve your smile’s aesthetics. At Kenedy Family Dental, we are committed to helping you reach the optimal solution for your smile, and Dr. Robert E. Fletcher DMD FICOI is prepared to discuss restorative services with you to determine if a dental implant is the right treatment for you.
If a dental implant is recommended for your smile, our dentist will develop an individualized treatment plan with you. We will take into account your specific needs and circumstances to ensure you receive the highest quality care from our office. The first step in the implant treatment is to place a titanium post in the tooth socket and then allow the post to bond to the jawbone. This healing typically takes 6-12 weeks. After the post is secure, our dentist will add a small connector post, called an abutment, to the titanium post. The abutment will hold the new tooth. Dr. Robert E. Fletcher DMD FICOI will then carefully examine your smile as he designs the new tooth, or crown, that will sit atop the abutment to make sure it matches your other teeth and fits well within your smile. Once the tooth is installed, it will feel and function as a natural tooth. With proper care, a dental implant can last a lifetime.
