When you have lost a tooth, one of the implant options our dentist offers are fixed dental implants. Fixed implants are non-removable, giving you a restoration designed to permanently replace your entire tooth, improving both your oral health and your smile. We welcome you to call us at 207-985-7944 to learn more about fixed dental implants in Kennebunk, Maine, and to schedule your consultation with Dr. Sara Sheikh or with our in-house periodontist, Dr. Samuel Koo.
Your fixed dental implant will consist of two main parts – an implant post to replace your tooth root and provide a stable foundation, and an implant restoration to replace the crown of your tooth or teeth. Implant posts are typically made of titanium or another biocompatible material and are surgically inserted into your jawbone. After the post has integrated with your jawbone, our dentist will work with you to create a prosthetic tooth restoration that will be fixed atop the post and complete your treatment. Common implant restorations include:
Fixed dental implants are available for both single teeth as well as multiple teeth, including the full arch of teeth.
