What is a Dental Implant?
Dr Parlett has been placing implants for over 30 years. He uses 3 of the most clinically proven implant systems to accommodate to a variety of different patient problems.
Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone where there is a missing tooth. There are several applications for implants in dentistry. Along with replacing single missing teeth, they can also be used to help fill longer spans of missing teeth, and they can help to secure dentures in the mouth.
Once it is determined that implants are a good option for you, and after your implants have been placed, Dr.Parlett can build the artificial, natural- looking restorations upon these titanium posts. The goal is that the implants will improve overall function, and contribute to improving your overall aesthetics.
There are several materials your restoration can be made out of. They offer varying degree's of strength and resilience which all contribute to the function and wear of the implant. Unique to our practice in the Bracebridge community, we provide patients with the convenience of an on-site dental lab where the dental restorations are manufactured.
