Dental Implants Overview
If you are looking for a long-lasting restoration to replace a missing tooth or teeth, general and cosmetic dentists Dr. Chris and Dr. Matt are very knowledgeable when it comes to dental implants. Dental implants are metal posts surgically placed in your gums and bone to replace the missing tooth root. One or more posts can be attached to a crown, denture, or bridge for a natural-looking restoration that can be treated like your real teeth. At Miller & Miller Dentistry, our dentists can repair or replace the restorations on top of your dental implants. If you would like to schedule a consultation to hear more about repairing or replacing a restoration on top of a dental implant and custom abutments at Miller & Miller Dentistry, please contact us at your earliest convenience.

With your customized restoration attached, you should maintain a good at-home oral care routine like flossing, brushing, and mouthwash. You should attend annual dental exams and bi-annual cleanings at Miller & Miller Dentistry so Dr. Chris Miller or Dr. Matt Miller can track the health of your implants and restorations. Your dentist will decide when your implants or restorations need to be repaired or replaced.
