If you have missing teeth or a tooth that cannot be saved, you will be left with gaps. Not only do these empty spaces hinder aesthetic, they can also cause problems with your bite. Your teeth can shift, causing more problems down the line. You want to keep your teeth intact and improve your smile. Dental implants can help you to make it look like you have a full set of beautiful teeth. They also function properly, allowing you to eat anything you wish. Dental implants can help you to be a healthier person by improving your oral health.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
When you have a dental implant, a titanium post is inserted into your jawbone in the area where you are missing a tooth. This post will be a permanent addition as it bonds with the bone in your jaw. A connector, or abutment, will attach a crown to your implant. Your ceramic crown will be molded to look like your natural teeth. In the end, your implant will look and function like an authentic tooth. Your tooth replacement will last for years to come. A dental implant is a good solution for one missing tooth or several teeth in need of replacement.
Dental Implants are an Effective Alternative to Typical Dentures
If you need to replace all of your teeth, our dentist can insert four implants into your jawbone to act as an anchor for your dentures. This will provide you with a full set of replacement teeth that are permanent. Unlike dentures, you won’t need to remove your implants at night. They’ll work as effectively as your natural teeth, allow you to enjoy all your favorite foods, and maintain the shape of your face.
Are Dental Implants Right for You?
Our dentist will be your best guide to determine if dental implants will work for you. When you come in for your examination, our dentist will evaluate your teeth. Medical imagery will play a role in determining your treatment plan. If dental implants will help you to improve your smile, our dentist can lead you through the process. It will take several appointments. The first appointment will mean a trip to the oral surgeon to have your posts implanted in your jaw. You will need to heal completely before your permanent crown will be attached, but you will have a temporary crown to fill the gap. Our dentist will determine the best time to put your permanent crown in place. It will match the color of the rest of your teeth, blending in seamlessly.
