Are you missing one, several or all of your teeth? Looking for a restorative dental procedure to permanently replace your missing teeth? At the Columbus dental practice of T. Lance Collier, DMD we are proud to offer various dental implant options for restoring the appearance and function of your smile! Wondering what the benefits of our Columbus dental implants are? They include:
When it comes to dental implants, they are typically made up using three parts which include:
The implant itself is a tiny, titanium post which is surgically attached to the patients jawbone, creating a secured, stable and permanent foundation for the abutment and restoration to be placed.
The abutment portion of the dental implant is secured to the implant which has been surgically attached and is then used to support the prosthetic (a dental crown, bridge, partial or even denture).
The restoration of your dental implant is the visible, tooth prosthetic (typically a dental crown, bridge, partial or denture). The dental implant restoration is designed to match with any existing natural teeth or style you prefer.
For patients that are interested in restoring more than one missing tooth at a time, we are proud to offer “all-on-x” dental implants, typically 4 or 6 are used however it changes depending upon each patient and their oral health. For all-on-x implants, a bridge, partial or denture is typically used, restoring more of your smile at once.

We are always excited to see new patients at our practice and would be happy to evaluate your oral health to determine if our Columbus implant dentistry is the right option for restoring and improving your smile.
