Benefits of Dental Implants
If you are missing one or more teeth, it is recommended to replace those teeth for the sake of your oral health. When teeth are missing, surrounding teeth will begin to shift out of place. Missing teeth also contribute to jaw bone loss. By replacing your missing teeth, you can help maintain a healthy, beautiful smile. Dental implants are color-matched to surrounding teeth. They can withstand the pressure of chewing and are made to last for many years. Dental implants can be used to replace one or several teeth, depending on your needs. Dental implants can be strategically placed across your jaw for a complete set of replacement teeth to be secured. Dental implants are long-lasting, natural-looking and worth the time invested!
The Implant Process
Getting dental implants requires a few visits over several months. x-rays and impressions will be taken of the jaw and teeth to determine spacing available for the implant. The area will be numbed and the implant will be surgically placed into the bone. Then it will heal and integrate itself into the bone in the next six months. Depending on which type of implant you receive, a second surgery may be needed to place the abutment that will hold the tooth in place. With some implants, the post and anchor are already attached and are placed during your initial surgery. After ample healing time, a dental crown will be made and fitted to the abutment. The crown will be secured to the implant. Once treatment is complete, you’ll have a fully restored tooth that blends in beautifully with your smile!
