Want to Restore Missing Teeth?

At Lakewood Dental Group, Dr. Shaun Sigurdson and Dr. Mihir Patel offer both dental implant placement and restoration. The first procedure places the implant and is minor oral surgery, after which the restoration is placed as a “cap” over the implant. This helps restore your beautiful smile.

When it comes to replacing one or more missing teeth, dental implants are one of the most long-lasting and popular restoration options, as it can effectively replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire arch of missing teeth. Each implant consists of two distinct parts. The first part, known as the dental implant post, is a biocompatible titanium screw surgically implanted into the patient’s jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth. This post helps to keep the restoration stable, and the implant process is frequently followed by a healing period which allows the post to bond with the natural bone structure.

Once the patient has fully healed from the implant placement procedure, our dentists will place your dental restoration, which will sit atop the implant post and act as a replacement for the visible part of your missing tooth or teeth. This restoration could take many forms depending on your specific needs, and our dentists will meet with you before the implant placement procedure to discuss which restoration is right for your smile and to help create a restoration that is custom made to fit comfortably and beautifully in your mouth. That might mean a single dental crown, a dental bridge, or a complete or partial implant-supported denture.
