At High Desert Dental, we can replace a missing tooth with a dental implant. But if you are interested in a restoration that looks and feels natural and helps you maintain good oral health, call our office at 505-888-2606 for an appointment with our dentist. Dr. Ozzie Rodas can provide you with a single dental implant in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to enhance every aspect of your smile.

Dental implants are an excellent solution to missing teeth. They can be used to replace one or more teeth and are stable, long-lasting and permanent oral appliances.

Dental implants comprise three parts: the implant post, the abutment and the implant restoration. The implant post is best described as an artificial “root” of the replacement tooth. Made out of titanium, it is fused to the jawbone to provide proper structure and support for the restoration. The abutment connects the other two parts and seals the gums against bacteria. And the implant restoration is the “crown,” or top, of the tooth and is placed like a cap over the implant to mimic a real tooth. The restoration itself is custom made to match your smile and can be used with the same utility as a normal tooth.

Dental implants will require multiple dental appointments to our office. Our dentist will discuss your treatment plan with you as you progress through the stages of the implant process to monitor your oral health throughout. We invite you to ask questions before, during and after treatments so you can stay informed about your care.

If you would like more details about dental implants, give our office a call and schedule a consultation with our team. We look forward to your visit!
