What Is a Dental Implant?
The Parts of an Implant-Supported Restoration
A complete tooth restoration consists of a dental implant, which is the titanium post that acts as a tooth root; the abutment, which is a piece that connects the implant to the restoration; and the restoration, which replaces the part of the tooth that can be seen above the gumline. Dental implants can be used to support an individual crown, a dental bridge, or even a full denture.

We Tailor Tooth Restoration to Your Needs Call for a Consultation
Missing teeth affect your self-confidence, but they can also affect the health of your whole smile. Gaps can lead to misalignment of your remaining teeth, additional tooth loss, and jawbone atrophy. While other methods can replace part of your tooth, none of them also replace the vital tooth root and prevent bone atrophy.
If you're unsure whether an implant or some other dental procedure is right for you, Dr. Adams at Peak Family Dentistry in Albuquerque, NM, can explain the benefits of implants and also discuss other tooth replacement methods if dental implants are not an option.
The first step is requesting a consultation so you can get the information you need to make an educated choice. Start today. Either get in touch online or call:

Dental Implants Are a Versatile Solution For Missing Teeth
When you are missing a single tooth, Dr. Adams can use just one dental implant paired with a crown to replace your missing tooth with a replica that looks like your natural tooth. The beauty of this method is that the dentist will not need to alter nearby healthy teeth to support a dental bridge (the traditional method of replacing a missing tooth).
If you are missing several teeth in a row, our dentist can create a dental bridge that is supported at either end by dental implants. Unlike traditional bridges, this one doesn't require reshaping natural teeth to hold it in place. Dental bridges supported by implants can also replace a greater number of teeth than a traditional bridge.
A Full Denture
Denture wearers experience a host of benefits with dentures supported by implants. The most welcome one is the freedom they have knowing their dentures will not slip out of place when they are eating or talking with friends. Dental implants can also stop or reverse the weakening of the jawbone by encouraging bone growth and retention.
