What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a type of tooth replacement. If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants can restore the health, function, and beauty of your smile. Our skilled dentist both places and restores dental implants in Middleburg Heights, Ohio and Middleburg Heights, Ohio. The dental implant is surgically placed in the jawbone, providing a stable foundation for the dental implant restoration. Dental implants look and feel very similar to natural teeth, making them an excellent tooth replacement choice. After a period of healing, during which the bone begins to fuse with the dental implant, Dr. Anthony Shaia will place the dental implant restoration. Dental implant restorations are custom made to fit your smile, and your implant restoration may be a dental crown, dental bridge, full denture, or partial denture.
