If your smile is flawed by a missing tooth or by missing teeth, our friendly team may recommend a dental implant as a permanent solution for you. Aside from replacing a missing tooth, a dental implant can restore your smile to its ideal beauty and function. If a dental implant is an option for you, Dr. Rita D. Wright will:
- Anesthetize the target site
- Surgically implant a titanium screw. A minimum three-month healing process will allow the implant to fuse with your jawbone.
- Place a small attachment known as an abutment on the screw
- Complete your implant with a restoration such as a crown, a bridge, a partial denture or a complete denture.
Regardless of the restoration that is chosen for you, our dentist will carefully shape your restoration to match your smile’s natural shape, color and tone. Aside from the aesthetic benefits, a dental implant can prevent complications such as gum disease or shifting teeth and allow for more natural function like speaking and chewing. At Wright Smile Center of Woodbridge, our team is devoted to providing you with a beautiful, functional smile.
