If you are missing one or more permanent teeth, Dr. Jeff Tulett may recommend dental implants in Hardin, Montana, to restore the beauty and function of your smile. Dental implants are a great choice because they are designed to become a permanent part of your smile. A dental implant consists of a titanium implant post, an abutment and a dental restoration, such as a dental crown.
If you choose a dental implant for your smile, our dentist will first surgically place the implant post in the socket of your missing tooth. During the healing process, which usually lasts for three to six months, your jawbone will fuse with the dental implant post. The abutment is attached to the top of the post. Then your dental restoration can be designed and created with your smile in mind. If a dental crown is chosen as your restoration, CEREC technology can be used to create it. Once your dental restoration is complete, the fit and color will be examined. After any necessary adjustments are made, the dental restoration will be attached to the abutment.
